ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Had Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner would've spent time throwing the ball rather than just keeping running with it in the fourth quarter, there may not been four overtimes, and Michigan would have remained undefeated.

Instead, four overtimes later, field goals went back and forth, and Penn State gave Michigan its first humiliating defeat at Beaver Stadium by the score of 43-40.

An interception led to a 12-yard TD pass put the Pittany Lions on the board in the with 7-0. However, the Wolverines tied it with a 59-yard TD pass to Devin Funchess, which was then followed with a 47-yard field goal from Brendan Gibbons that gave Michigan the lead with 10-7.

Michigan struggled through the rest of the first half, as another interception led to two touchdowns that gave Penn State a 21-10 lead.

The Wolverines started to find its footing in the second half thanks to Jeremy Gallon in the third quarter and a 34-yard reception to Funchess in the fourth that puts Michigan back.

Still, Penn State equalized the odds against Michigan thanks to a 43-yard field goal and a touchdown that led to a failed 52-yard field goal attempt by Michigan and four overtimes, as the Wolverines are now 5-1.

Next up: The Wolverines will face Indiana on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 3:30 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
