In the second half, three straight MI drives ended in interceptions, each one punted or fumbled right back as the rain kept falling and the clock kept dying.
The Nittany Lions will host Michigan in their next game, followed by road trips to Ohio State and Michigan State.
When the skies opened up, MI took to the air.
After his performance against Purdue, many MI football fans wanted O'Korn to become the starter. And, Harbaugh doesn't care for it. We want to win every game we play, we want to them all.
The topic was broached again at Harbaugh's Monday press conference. "That's usually the case when something doesn't work".

Lewerke scored a go-ahead TD on a 14-yard run late in the first quarter.
No one really knew what to expect from Michigan State and Mark Dantonio after a disastrous 3-9 season a year ago and a host of offseason controversies and personnel shuffling. Let us know in the comments!
The unranked Spartans made a big statement on Saturday night by taking a 14-10 win at No. 7 MI. "And most importantly, we want to win this one, our next game", said Harbaugh. "That's a very easy thing to do".
Though credit should certainly be given to the Spartans for the way they came out and played, the most deciding factor in the game was the Wolverines five turnovers.
"We've done it eight times", Dantonio said. One has to wonder how well Korn will play with only one week of practice as the starting quarterback. He was replaced by backup John O'Korn, who helped the Wolverines rally to a 28-10 win against the Boilermakers.
How does cornerback Lavert Hill handle the challenge of covering receivers down the field when the quarterback may tuck the ball and run? "He's shown what he can do". O'Korn & Co. converted good field position into a quick score, their only touchdown of the game. Regular starter Keller Chryst took the first snaps under center for the Cardinal (7/13, 106 yards), but was spelled regularly for K.J. If Oklahoma gets it back together, I'm willing to consider the head-to-head more. Gary is proving to be as legit as all MI fans hoped he would be.
Among teams at the highest level of college football, the Wolverines rank 115th in tackles for losses allowed; 110th in first downs; 109th in turnovers and 84th in total offense with a running game that ranks only slightly better their passing game.
"We definitely talked about it", Lewerke said.
