ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- No. 4 Michigan had outgained Penn State by more than 200 yards when both teams returned to their locker rooms at halftime. The Wolverines had sacked Nittany Lions quarterback Trace McSorley five times, and they hadn't punted.

Four of the Wolverines' first five drives ended in touchdowns, and Michigan rolled to a 49-10 victory over the Nittany Lions on Saturday at Michigan Stadium.

"There's a difference between playing ranked teams and top-five teams," coach James Franklin said. "Those top-five teams are top- five teams for a reason. And they played like it today."

The Wolverines (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) led 14-0 after the first quarter and 28-0 at halftime.

The Lions (2-2, 0-1) felt the absence of their three starting linebackers from Week 1 all game. Jason Cabinda hasn't played since their opener against Kent State due to an injured left wrist. Brandon Bell (leg) didn't travel with the team, and Nyeem Wartman- White suffered a season-ending injury last week against Temple.

However, their depth at linebacker thinned even more as the game progressed.

Former walk-on Brandon Smith, who started at middle linebacker, was ejected for targeting on the first play of the second quarter while trying to intercept a pass.

The targeting penalty that ejected Smith was complicated. It was obvious Smith had no intention of making helmet-to-helmet contact with the receiver. But Franklin pointed out the targeting rule doesn't account for the defensive player's intent when he contacts a defensive receiver.

Johnson, the Lions' fourth-string middle linebacker, left the game due to injury on the Wolverines' next drive. …
