No. 4 Michigan moves to 4-0 by pummeling Penn State, 49-10. A big test waits for the Wolverines next week. Wisconsin should be ranked in the top 10 when the Badgers get to Ann Arbor next Saturday.

Don Brown said this week he wanted to force Penn State into a lot of "high freeze" (looking to sideline for the play after initially getting set) to slow things down. He has, and it's working. Michigan has sacks on one-third of the Nittany Lions' pass attempts and has held them to negative-3 rushing yards.

UM, MSU players raise fists during anthem

Players for Michigan and Michigan State raised their fists in the air during the national anthem at each team's home game on Saturday.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Professional set up here in Ann Arbor. No. 4 Michigan hosts Penn State this afternoon, but a lot of folks are paying close attention to East Lansing right now. If Wisconsin and Michigan win it would likely be a top 10 match-up at the Big House next week.
