Sam Ficken was perfect on both of his field goal attempts. Bill Belton was able to get a run game going for the Nittany Lions, rushing for 69 yards on 14 carries. Anthony Zettel's interception in the 2nd quarter set up a 10 yard TD Pass from Christian Hackenberg to DaeSean Hamilton to give Penn State a 13-7 lead
Penn State also needs to take advantage of scoring touchdowns while in the redzone, as they had to settle for two early field goals on its two first possessions.
The Penn State Offensive Line allowed 6 sacks and three other times its running game was stopped in the backfield for a loss. Christian Hackenberg threw another interception, which allowed the Wolverines to set up a game tying field goal. This was crucial as both teams struggled offensively and Penn State was not going to get much help from its offensive line and thus be able to move the ball efficiently.
