What you need to know about Michigan

It may have taken triple overtime to finish the job, but the Wolverines ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Saturday with a 48-42 win over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. QB Cade McNamara had a stellar game for Michigan as he passed for four TDs and 260 yards on 36 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

Outside of getting run over in a loss to Wisconsin where it gave up 341 rushings yards, the Michigan run defense has been pretty solid so far this season. The Wolverines have allowed no more than 3.3 yards per carry in their other four games and Penn State averaged just 1.8 yards per carry last week in a loss to Iowa.

What you need to know about Penn State

Meanwhile, the matchup between Penn State and the Iowa Hawkeyes last Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Penn State falling 41-21 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. A silver lining for the Nittany Lions was the play of WR Jahan Dotson, who caught eight passes for one TD and 139 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Dotson’s 68-yard TD reception in the third quarter. Dotson has 31 catches for 527 yards and six touchdowns now on the season and he’ll be a tough matchup for a Michigan secondary that has given up at least 300 yards through the air in three of the last four games.

Michigan’s victory lifted them to 2-3 while Penn State’s defeat dropped them down to 0-5. Allowing an average of 36 points per game, the Wolverines haven’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.
