Browns will have scouting presence at MI vs. Penn State

At those moments, when Penn State needed someone else, they had someone else-whether it was McSorley, who ran for 76 yards and scored three rushing touchdowns, including a weaving 13-yard run that put the Nittany Lions up 28-13 in the third quarter, or whether it was Hamilton, the target of several McSorley deep fades that took advantage of a MI pass rush that often leaves its secondary playing man-to-man in coverage. Thirteen months after Penn State lost to MI by 39 on the road in the Big House, it took less than a minute for a new tone in the series to be set: On the second play of the game, Heisman candidate tailback Saquon Barkley took a direct snap and burst past a confused Wolverines defense for a 69-yard touchdown.

Michigan Wolverines cornerback Lavert Hill was apart of the bludgeoning that his team received at the hands of the Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday night in Happy Valley and needless to say, he wasn't too pleased about it. With 10:11 still to play in the first quarter, Penn State had a 14-0 lead.

Saquon Barkley rushed for 108 yards and two touchdowns, caught a 42-yard pass for a third touchdown, and the Nittany Lions scored 28 unanswered points.

The Wolverines have yet to find much offensive consistency this season, but will need to play a complete football game on both sides of the ball if they hope to beat Penn State, one of the best teams in the country, on the road.

With an off week to prepare, Penn State didn't let up.

Penn State also has Saquon Barkley, a unique talent at running back. MI dropped a second game, and that likely knocks the team out of the Big Ten East race under third-year coach Jim Harbaugh.

Michigan's second touchdown drive began after the visitors stopped Penn State on fourth down and took over at their 33. Ty Isaac scored from that spot two plays later, and it was 14-13 with 1:45 left until halftime. The Wolverines need a win to stay in the Big Ten East race. But a loss to Penn State would basically end any hopes MI has of a Big Ten championship. Ohio State defeated MI by a similar 42-13 score in 2015.
