Michigan comeback falls short
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Giving up three touchdowns in under 14 minutes in the first half at Penn State, the Wolverines had their work cut out for them in order to make a comeback. Making a show of it right up to the final moments, a game-tying pass attempt on fourth down fell to the ground, sending Michigan home in defeat 28-21.

The Wolverines struck before halftime to draw closer, and pulled within a score twice in the second half, showing more spark on offense than has been typical this season.

Shea Patterson completed 24 of 41 attempts for 276 yards, while Zach Charbonnet carried the ball 15 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns.

Dropping to 5-2 on the season and 3-2 in conference play, the Wolverines will face another tough challenge next week with the rivalry matchup against Notre Dame. Michigan will host the Fighting Irish at 7:30 p.m. eastern on Saturday with television coverage provided by ABC.
