UM nose tackle Glasgow might be done for season

Bloomington, Ind. — Michigan likely will be without one of its biggest forces on the defensive line, nose tackle Ryan Glasgow.

Glasgow missed the Indiana game after suffering an injury in the Rutgers game the week before. His left arm was in a sling this week.

"It's looking that way," Harbaugh said Saturday after Michigan's double-overtime victory at Indiana when asked if Glasgow will be lost for the rest of the season.

Harbaugh said it is a pectoral muscle injury.

Glasgow had started the first nine games of this season and 14 straight dating to last season. He has made 20 starts in his career.

Maurice Hurst started against Indiana in Glasgow's place.

Glasgow's absence clearly was missed as Indiana gained 527 yards of total offense, including 307 rushing.

"It looked like we were playing like we were undermanned," Harbaugh said. "We were tired. We're going to have to suck it up."

Special teams work

In the last two weeks, Michigan has allowed a kickoff returned for a touchdown, and Indiana's Mitchell Paige scored on a 51-yard punt return early in the third quarter.

Harbaugh said that's clearly something Michigan must work on.

"There was enough good," Harbaugh said. "There was more good than bad and ugly. Regroup, retool, refit and come back. It's great to be able to do it with a win."

Michigan also missed a field goal by Kenny Allen on a poor snap that holder Blake O'Neill had to field after it skipped on the ground.

Kickoff set

Michigan's game at Penn State next Saturday will kick off at noon on ABC, the Big Ten announced late Saturday. The Wolverines will then return home to face rival Ohio State in a noon game in Nov. 28
