Michigan running back De'Veon Smith (4) tries to rush by Penn State linebacker Jake Cooper (33) in the first half of an NCAA college football game in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016.

(Ann Arbor, MI) -- De'Veon Smith and six other Michigan players rushed for a total of 329 yards and six touchdowns yesterday as the Wolverines pounded Penn State 49-10 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

It was the Big Ten opener for both schools.

Smith rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown, while Karon Higdon added a pair of rushing TDs for the 4-0 Wolverines.

Michigan reached the end zone on its first three drives and their offense totaled over 500 yards for the game, taking advantage of a depleted Penn State defense.

Penn State was shutout and managed just 50 yards of offense in the first half.

The Lions lone touchdown came in the 4th quarter on an 8-yard pass from Trace McSorley to Chris Godwin.

Next up for the 2-2 Lions is Minnesota, next Saturday, October 1st at Beaver Stadium.
