J.J. McCarthy had a perfect response after another huge performance on the ground for Michigan.

McCarthy finished with only 145 passing yards and did not have a touchdown, but Michigan still dominated the game, winning 41-17. This was due to an explosive performance on the ground, with the team collecting 418 yards rushing.

McCarthy is content with playing second fiddle as long as his team keeps winning. Donovan Edwards put up 173 yards and Blake Corum put up 166 yards, both ending up with 2 TDs.

The performance was even more impressive when factoring in the fact that Penn State had a top-10 defense entering the game.

Michigan will now enter their bye week undefeated. In Week 9, the Wolverines will welcome the Spartans to Ann Arbor.
