A Streak of Their Own

Finally, Michigan's 9 game winning streak over Penn State has been snapped. For much of the first half, it looked like the winning streak would continue as the Nittany Lions came out flat fumbling the football and failing to tackle defensively. Michigan built a 17-7 point lead early in to the second quarter, but that was all she wrote for Michigan.

Penn State forced a 17-14 game at half and then exploded for 32 second half points including a safety that gave them their first lead of the game at 19-17. Evan Royster ran all over the Michigan defenses gaining 174 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown. The 46-17 win was their first win over Michigan since 1996. Penn State's 29 point margin of victory was their largest ever over Michigan.

Now the team will turn their focus to Ohio State, a team that they have been looking forward to during the beginning of the game against Michigan. Ohio State is coming off an impressive win in East Lansing and it looked like their offense finally clicked. It will definitely be a battle in Columbus and it'll be on at prime-time. Sadly, during the same time of game 3 of the World Series. Going to be an awful lot of switching back and forth in Philly. I suggest you goto a bar.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
