sport news No Harbaugh, no problem! Michigan beat Penn State 24-15 without their banned ... trends now
The Michigan Wolverines showed they remain unfazed by the off-field drama engulfing the team as they put away Penn State 24-15 without coach Jim Harbaugh on Saturday.
It was announced late morning that Harbaugh would not be on the sideline after his bid to get a restraining order against the Big Ten and its Commissioner Tony Petitti was delayed until November 17.
The school delivered on its promise to fight back in court, asking a Michigan judge for a temporary restraining order that would have allowed Harbaugh to coach the Wolverines in their biggest game of the season so far.
But they were unsuccessful after the court decided there would be no ruling in the case until later this month - meaning Harbaugh's offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore was put in charge in Pennsylvania.

The Wolverines produced a far from perfect performance and Penn State led 3-0 after a nervy opening quarter that saw neither side truly take control.
But the game swung in favor of Michigan in the second quarter when Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards both scored touchdowns.
Drew Allar scored for Penn State but Corum's second touchdown of the day with four minutes remaining sealed the victory for Michigan.
The Wolverines move to 10-0 after beating the first ranked team they've faced so far this season.
It comes after a controversial week for the Wolverines which saw the school disciplined for an elaborate, in-person scouting scheme that is also being investigated by the NCAA.
