Right guard Michael Onwenu, along with Stephen Spanellis, continue to develop into valuable members of Michigan's offensive line.

Stephen Spanellis has, as Harbaugh called it, football smarts — and as his performance Saturday showed, he’s still able to be effective, especially when working with Michael Onwenu.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed that redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters is now the starter.

Yes, it was just Rutgers. But, thanks to their new quarterback, the Wolverines seem like a different team now. Here are five other things we learned:

Saturday, October 28, 2017 - 4:07pm
Redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters completed 10-of-14 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown in Michigan's 35-14 win over Rutgers.

That was the biggest difference between Peters and his new backup. He did all the simple tasks that were asked of him.

Freshman linebacker Brad Hawkins has spent time returning kicks this year while acclimating to his role at VIPER.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is now faced with the prospect of his Wolverines finishing third or worse in the conference for the third straight year.

The Daily breaks down five things we learned from Saturday night's blowout loss in State College.

Saturday, October 21, 2017 - 10:56pm
Penn State defeated Michigan 42-13 at Beaver Stadium Saturday.

All week, Michigan’s vaunted defense was billed as a potential roadblock for one of the nation’s most electric players. Saquon Barkley stomped all over that notion on the second play from scrimmage.

Saturday, October 21, 2017 - 8:42pm
Penn State is up 21-13 over Michigan at the half.

Saquon Barkley took the direct snap, cut away from the teeth of the defense and ran off into the night.

And that was just the second play of the game.

In what was billed as a fight between two heavyweight contenders, No. 2 Penn State wasted no time in hitting No. 19 Michigan in the mouth —  and continued doing so all night long.

The Michigan football team will be tasked with stopping Heisman candidate Saquon Barkley on Saturday.

The Michigan Daily spoke with Jill Beckman of The Daily Collegian and Philly Inquirer ahead of this week’s game about Barkley, Penn State’s defense and what it will take for the Wolverines to pull off an upset.

Fifth-year senior defensive tackle Maurice Hurst believes his team’s defense has yet to reach its full potential.

Hurst’s history against the Nittany Lions — coupled with his play this year — makes it all the more likely that he’ll enjoy success in his final game against Penn State on Saturday night.

Saturday, October 14, 2017 - 5:15pm
Fifth-year senior quarterback John O'Korn has averaged just 4.65 yards per attempt in the last two weeks.

After Saturday, Michigan knows what it has from its starter. And if the performance against Indiana was it, there’s no sense in not checking what else is there.
