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.

Senior left tackle Mason Cole was quick to acknowledge that the Wolverines can't afford to swallow a loss against Penn State this weekend.

A loss to No. 2 Penn State removes the Wolverines from the College Football Playoff discussion, but a win keeps those hopes alive.

Fifth-year senior quarterback John O'Korn needs to manage the game, not play the hero, for Michigan to have a chance to beat No. 2 Penn State.

John O’Korn does need to step up, but it doesn’t fall solely on his shoulders and the Wolverines don’t need him to play hero. More simply, they need him to take what comes to him.

Sophomore linebacker Devin Bush Jr. will handle a large share of the responsibility in stopping Saquon Barkley.

Saquon Barkley’s presence pits an elite offense against an elite defense. And if Michigan wants to pull off the upset, stopping him is the first step.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh admitted that the 16 penalties in Saturday's game need to be corrected moving forward.

The 19th-ranked Wolverines almost suffered the fatal blow Saturday in Bloomington. The Daily breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly from Saturday’s game.

Sophomore cornerback Lavert Hill continued to make the case that he can be a shutdown corner with an interception against Indiana.

Next up for Michigan is a date with No. 2 Penn State in State College — a contest that has earned ESPN’s “College GameDay” treatment. Before the Wolverines get there, though, here are five things we learned in Bloomington.

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.

Sophomore cornerback Lavert Hill drew praise from Jim Harbaugh for his performances during his first year as a starter.

Lavert Hill's breakout campaign as a member of the Wolverines' secondary continued in Bloomington, where he recorded an interception that could have sealed the game.

Michigan beat Indiana 27-20 at Memorial Stadium Saturday.

Behind the efforts of junior running back Karan Higdon and the Wolverines’ defense, the No. 17 Michigan football team escaped the overtime period with a 27-20 victory over Indiana.

Junior running back Karan Higdon scored a 25-yard touchdown in overtime to beat the Hoosiers.

In No. 17 Michigan’s 27-20 overtime win, Higdon put the team on his back, running for three touchdowns and 200 yards on 25 carries.
