After exacting some revenge for 2016’s 49-10 loss with a 42-13 win last season, the Wolverines will be looking for revenge of their own in this weekend’s matchup.
Micah Parsons may have something to say about that, however. The freshman linebacker is amped up for his first game against the Wolverines. The team’s leading tackler also has some lofty ambitions away from the gridiron.
Speaking of Cael Sanderson’s squad, the Nittany Lions begin their national championship defense Nov. 11 when they host Kent State. The Nittany Lions look poised to repeat (again) but there are a handful of teams that could pose a challenge to the Nittany Lions hopes of a fourth-straight national title.
Penn State fans held their breath on Saturday after Trace McSorley injured his knee following a sack early in the second quarter. Speculation over the nature of the injury began immediately, but it didn’t stop McSorley from returning to the game and scampering for a 51-yard touchdown run. On Tuesday, James Franklin praised McSorley’s toughness, but didn’t note how the ailment could impact play calling on Saturday in Ann Arbor.
Even if McSorley isn’t at 100 percent, the Wolverines know how much of a threat he is and will be planning around a fully-functioning McSorley.
