College Football 2016: Week 4 Recap
Friday, 2016 September 30 - 9:54 pm
Michigan stomps Penn State; NCSU was idle.

Michigan 49, Penn State 10
You kinda have to feel bad for Penn State. They were already thin at the linebacker spot, with three out before the game, and then lost a fourth to a questionable targeting call, and a fifth to an injury during the game. Add that to a renewed Michigan emphasis on running the ball, and that translates to 326 yards rushing, many of them on the same inside zone play.

Meanwhile, Penn State's offense was lackluster. The fault was largely in the PSU offensive line, unable to open holes for running back Saquan Barkley and unable to protect quarterback Trace McSorley, who was sacked five times.

Unfortunately cornerback Jeremy Clark was lost to a leg injury for the season during the game. Michigan still has talent at the position, with stars Jourdan Lewis and Channing Stribling, but the lack of depth may hurt down the line.

But this was a comfortable and easy win to open the Big Ten season. Even against a depleted Penn State squad, a conference win is always appreciated.

Notable Games
#7 Stanford beat UCLA 22-13. Stanford remains the favorite to win the Pac-12, but Washington is coming up quickly.
Speaking of #9 Washington, they beat Arizona 35-28 in overtime.
#10 Texas A&M beat #17 Arkansas, 45-24. A&M is pretty good, you guys.
#11 Wisconsin crushed #8 Michigan State 30-6. This wasn't really a surprise; as I said before, MSU probably isn't as good as everyone thought. The win over Notre Dame lost a lot of its luster, because:
Notre Dame lost to Duke 38-35. Yeah, Duke. ND may be facing a losing season this year.
#23 Ole Miss demolished #12 Georgia 45-14. Georgia seems like they're perennially overrated.
#14 Tennessee came from behind to beat #19 Florida 38-28. I'm not really a believer in either of these teams.
Auburn beat #18 LSU 18-13, leading to the firing of coach Les Miles this week.
#20 Nebraska beat Northwestern 24-13.
#24 Utah beat USC 31-27, continuing USC's woes. Hey, maybe they'll hire Les Miles.
Iowa only barely beat Rutgers 14-7. What the heck is wrong with Iowa lately? Good thing they gave Kirk Ferentz that big contract extension.
