Saquon Barkley made a Heisman Trophy statement, and the Nittany Lions roar into a showdown at No. 6 Ohio State next Saturday.

Jim Harbaugh was short, to the point and frank following his team's beating Saturday night.

It comes down to this.

Numerous new wrinkles Penn State showed on Saturday, Franklin said-including those direct snaps to Barkley-had been in the playbook since training camp. His three-yard score gave the Nittany Lions a 21-13 lead just before halftime, and his 13 and 9-yard scores in the second half all but put the Wolverines away. After a quick MI punt, Trace McSorley ran for 23 yards, then lofted a 35-yard pass to Mike Gesicki. Michigan, meanwhile, couldn't make the big plays with John O'Korn under center. One-time Penn State commit Quinn Nordin, who was booed by the home crowd, missed the PAT.Penn State threatened again on its next series, reaching the MI 34.

Barkley added to his highlight-reel clip with those two touchdown runs and ran up histotals with 108 rushing yardsagainst one of the nation's best defenses.

Bagheri arrived in Damascus on Wednesday to exchange views with senior Syrian officials over issues of mutual interests. Tensions have risen this year between Lebanon's Hezbollah and Israel, which have avoided a major conflict since 2006.

Penn State extended its lead in the third quarter on McSorley's 3-yard run, a score set up on three cmompletions totaling 46 yards to Hamilton.

MI closed the game to 14-13 in the second quarter, but Penn State made sure to go into halftime with the momentum with a late touchdown on a McSorley keeper.

MI fought back in the game and took the momentum for most of the second quarter after a David Long interception. Ty Isaac scored from that spot two plays later, and it was 14-13 with 1:45 left until halftime.

Barkley was the catalyst of an electrifying opening five minutes for Penn State.

And now we advance to what could be the game of the year in the Big Ten, with no disrespect meant to the fine folks in Madison, Wisconsin. He'll have to be just as good - especially in the passing game - against Ohio State's loaded defensive line. That's the bridge the Wolverines couldn't overcome. But a loss to Penn State would basically end any hopes MI has of a Big Ten championship. The Wolverines need a win to stay in the Big Ten East race.
