For a complete game preview click here: Michigan at Penn State. For the extra points, read on. Michigan leads the all-time series against Penn State with a 10-6 record. The Wolverines have a 5-3 record at Beaver Stadium. Blake Countess (Photo credit: MGoBlue.com) Blake Countess ranks 1st nationally with 4 interceptions. Countess’ 4 picks are the most for a Michigan player since Donovan Warren tallied 4 in 2009. Devin Gardner is a red zone wizard. The Wolverines have scored 32 touchdowns in 38 trips to the red zone with the new #98 at QB. Teamrankings.com projects Michigan to win 27-24. numberFire has the Wolverines winning 23-22. Jeremy Gallon has caught a pass in 31 consecutive games. That is the 4th longest streak in Michigan history. If he extends that streak to 32 games this week, he will tie Marquise Walker for the third longest streak in school history. Last week, Devin Funchess established career-highs with 7 receptions for 151 yards. He also scored a touchdown and was named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week. Devin Gardner ranks 2nd in the Big Ten and 38th nationally in total offense with 271 yards per game. Desmond Morgan leads the Wolverines with 34 tackles. Penn State has declared this game a White Out. Michigan fans should take notice of how perfectly the Beaver Stadium crowd executes this because the Maize Outs are never as effective. Michigan ranks 9th nationally in rushing defense and has not allowed a rushing touchdown this season. The Wolverines lead the Big Ten and rank 11th nationally in third down conversion percentage (53.7%). Michigan has churned out 890 rushing yards this this season and held the opposition to just 452 yards on the ground. Here’s an interview with Michigan’s new starting left guard Chris Bryant. Last week, was Devin Gardner’s first turnover free game at QB. Here’s to hoping he can repeat that this week. Jake Ryan is getting really close to returning. That will be a huge boost for Michigan’s defense. Sophomore defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins suffered a season ending knee injury last week. Fitzgerald Toussaint ranks 21st in school history with 2,039 career rushing yards. He needs 138 yards to move past Rick Leach and into 20th place.
