The defense struggled, as the Nittany Lions posted more than 500 offensive yards. By halftime, Penn State’s 303 yards and 21 points were both the most against the Michigan defense in a game this season.
Michigan had 269 offensive yards, 1 turnover and 16 first downs on Saturday.
Michigan is 5-2 (2-2 Big Ten) this season, as the Wolverines earlier lost to rival Michigan State, 14-10. In that game, O’Korn threw three interceptions.
O’Korn and the Wolverines will have to regroup when Rutgers visits Ann Arbor, Mich., for a 12 p.m. ET game on Saturday, Oct. 28.
Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said his team will have to solve any problems as a team.
“We solve this with our team,” Harbaugh said after the game. “Nobody else can help us but us. We put our best people on it, our players and our coaches.”
