Michigan Football Run Game, Defense Overpowers Michigan State, 29-7

Paul Bunyan is not leaving Ann Arbor.

Mel Tucker is no longer perfect against his rival.

But Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan No. 4 continued their unblemished season with a dominant second half to pull away from tougher-than-expected Michigan State on Saturday night.

Blake Corum scored twice, Jake Moody scored five field goals and the Wolverines defense held the Spartans without a first down in their first three second-half drives en route to a 29-7 victory.

Michigan (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) heads to Rutgers next Saturday for a second straight kickoff at 7:30 p.m. (BTN). Wolverines last won their first eight games in 2016, when they started 9-0 in Harbaugh’s second season. He improved to 4-4 against the Spartans as UM head coach.

MSU (3-5, 1-4) travels to No. 18 Illinois next Saturday, with playing time and TV network to be determined. It was Tucker’s first loss to the Wolverines in three seasons.
