After the game, Harbaugh was asked a question about the offense's final play, a failed fourth-and-goal attempt from Penn State's 3 that could've tied the game at 28 with just over two minutes left in the fourth.

Harbaugh began the answer by describing how the Wolverines called the pass play.

- Jim Harbaugh was short, to the point and frank following his team' s beating Saturday night. Michigan gave up 506 yards of total offense and wilted in a 42-13 loss to Penn State , a game that essentially knocks it out of Big Ten title contention.Saquon Barkley rushed for 108 yards and two touchdowns

Then he moved onto a different subject: The officiating.

"It'll be interesting to compare some of the different scenarios in the game, in terms of calls," Harbaugh said. "Lavert's holding penalty that led to a touchdown on 3rd and 11 versus a couple of those there at the end. Some of our receivers were getting tackled there, last couple plays of that drive."

He first touched on a defensive holding penalty that was called on cornerback Lavert Hill in the fourth quarter. The penalty occurred during a third-and-11 play which ended in a Penn State incompletion over the head of the intended receiver, tight end Pat Freiermuth.

Had the play stood, the Nittany Lions would've had to punt with a seven-point lead.

But the flag was thrown on Hill, giving Penn State a fresh set of downs — and four plays later, quarterback Sean Clifford hit receiver KJ Hamler for a 53-yard touchdown pass.

Harbaugh also touched upon other calls.

"Be interesting to see the lineman downfield, the one they called on us that took off a touchdown compared to — especially the one that stands out in my mind was the Hawkins one, going for an interception and the guard knocking it away," he said. "So there's a few. The (offensive pass interference) they called on us versus the (offensive pass interference) that I thought should've been called on them on their first touchdown.

"As far as the calls and the officiating goes, that'll be interesting to compare some of those."

Michigan was flagged eight times for 48 yards. Offensive pass interference was notably called twice — once on Nico Collins on a deep ball that was offset by defensive holding, and one later on Donovan Peoples-Jones. Harbaugh, meanwhile, believed Freiermuth should've been whistled for offensive pass interference on his first-quarter touchdown catch, during which it appeared he pushed off of linebacker Khaleke Hudson.
