The Michigan Wolverines saw their game against the Penn State Nittany Lions swing on two plays in the first half, with Sean Clifford’s big run and the pick-six giving the road team a 14-13 lead. The game once again swung on two plays in the third quarter and this time, it was the Wolverines who benefitted. After stopping Penn State on fourth down, Michigan handed the rock to its star running back Blake Corum on first down. The rest was history.

All of a sudden, what was a 24-17 Michigan lead became a 31-17 advantage and completely tilted the momentum in the home team’s favor. For Corum, it was his 13th rushing touchdown of the season which gives him the lead in that category. The Heisman candidate is sitting at +1200 to win the honor on DraftKings Sportsbook at the moment, and he could keep climbing if he has more runs like this.
