The Michigan and Penn State football teams will face off on Saturday for the first time since the Nittany Lions blew out the Wolverines, 42-13 last season.

The Daily caught up with Tyler King, the football editor at Penn State’s student newspaper, The Daily Collegian, to ask about the importance of the game and how he sees things panning out.

Sophomore fullback Ben Mason has flourished at his position this season.

Ben Mason says he will do anything to help his team, and it's easy to believe him.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and his team will have to stop Penn State's Trace McSorley on Saturday.

The Daily breaks down what to watch for in the third game of the Wolverines' self-proclaimed Revenge Tour.

Sophomore defensive end Kwity Paye got his first career sack against Penn State last season, and since then, he has developed into a solid option on the line.

Last season’s matchup with Penn State is one that many Wolverines have tried not to forget. The Nittany Lions embarrassed the Michigan football team, 42-13, and went so far as trying to score late in the game when they could have just run out the clock.

Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown says he has thought about last season’s Penn State game every day since the Wolverines lost, 42-13.

It’s been well publicized at this point that Don Brown thinks about last year’s 42-13 loss to Penn State every day. That’s 376 days replaying the deepest stain on his three years at Michigan.

Senior running back Karan Higdon has embraced his position as captain.

After the Michigan football team’s last game, a 21-7 win over Michigan State, there was a lot to talk about. So when Karan Higdon sat in the visitors’ press conference room at Spartan Stadium, he was asked about pregame antics and motivation and doubters.

Junior safety Josh Metellus has recorded 30 tackles and three picks through eight games so far this season.

After allowing season highs of 506 yards and 42 points to Penn State in last season’s blowout, the Michigan football team’s defense can seemingly rest easier. This Saturday, it doesn’t have to line up across some of the threats that keep defensive coordinator Don Brown up at night.

The Michigan football team is entering a bye week after notching a 21-7 win over Michigan State last weekend in East Lansing.

Here are five good ways to spend your bye-week Saturday.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh commented on the pre-game antics between Michigan and Michigan State on Saturday.

Harbaugh started his weekly meeting with reporters on Monday with his standard fare: a limited update on injuries, compliments for his players and goals for the bye week — stuff that fills the morning sports pages but nothing that makes you blink twice. That was until 19 minutes in, when Harbaugh pulled a piece of paper out from his back pocket. He decided it was time to deliver the message he had come to give.

Junior defensive end Josh Uche leads Michigan's football team in sacks with five this season.

Uche rarely, if ever, likes to talk about himself — his impact is often muffled amongst a star-studded defensive unit anyway. But in the wake of an injury with an unknown timeline to defensive end Rashan Gary, Uche has seamlessly filled his absence and shined.
