Corum rushes for 2 TDs, No. 3 Michigan beats No. 10 Penn State 24-15 

Blake Corum ran for two touchdowns and No. 3 Michigan held No. 10 Penn State to 96 yards in the second half as the Wolverines defeated the Nittany Lions 24-15 on Saturday afternoon. 

The Wolverines were without head coach Jim Harbaugh, who served the first of a three-game suspension after the Big Ten Conference announced a penalty for in-person scouting on Friday.

Michigan was initially shut out in the first quarter, then the Wolverines running backs turned up the jets. 

Corum ran in the first touchdown from 3 yards out with 11:56 left to play in the second quarter. On the Wolverines’ next drive, running back Donovan Edwards punched in a 22-yard rushing touchdown to stretch Michigan’s lead to 14-3. 

Penn State quarterback Drew Allar ran in a score of his own in the final minute of the first half, and the two-point conversion failed on the ensuing play. 

That was the name of the game for Penn State. The Nittany Lions trailed by eight points for much of the second half after Michigan kicker James Turner made a 22-yard field goal. 

The Wolverines ended the game having ran 30-consecutive rushing plays. Quarterback JJ McCarthy, who didn’t attempt a pass in the second half, finished 7-of-8 for 60 yards. 

Corum had another big run of 30 yards that went into the end zone late in the fourth quarter to put the Wolverines ahead 24-9. 

After three first down conversions, Allar found receiver Theo Johnson from 8 yards out for a touchdown, and once again, the two-point attempt failed, keeping the Nittany Lions down 24-15 the rest of the way.

Allar finished 10-of-22 for 70 yards and a touchdown.
