Penn State 43, Michigan 40 (Final, 4OT)
Michigan learned at least 10 things from the loss.
Bill Belton became an instant Penn State hero Saturday night with a two-yard touchdown run during the fourth overtime to seal his team's 43-40 win over the visiting Michigan Wolverines.
Running the ball wasn't the Nittany Lions' (4-2, 1-1) calling on Saturday, but it worked well enough to squeak out a fourth straight series victory over No. 18-ranked Michigan (5-1, 1-1).
Belton finished the night with 24 carries for a team-high 86 yards.
Leading 21-10 at the half, Penn State appeared to be in control of its Week 7 Big Ten showdown. With hotshot frosh quarterback Christian Hackenberg's three passing touchdowns, the Nittany Lions certainly provided enough opposition for Team 134, which was previously unbeaten.
Hackenberg's 40-yard pass to Allen Robinson late in the fourth quarter set the wheels in motion for Penn State's comeback. After that connection, Hackenberg put his head down and bulldozed his way into the end zone for a half-yard touchdown.
That score tied the game at 34-34.
Hackenberg finished the night with 304 passing yards, three touchdowns and a pair of picks.
Turnovers, yet again, caused the demise of Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner, who threw for 240 yards, three touchdowns and two picks. He has 10 interceptions on the year.
