MICHIGAN: The Wolverines still have a lot of work to do on offense, especially in the red zone.
Speight was asked point-blank immediately after the game on the field on BTN about the red zone offense, and he didn't shy away from basically acknowledging that it's a serious problem.
Nordin then easily made a 49-yard field goal with only 4 seconds remaining in the second period to put MI up 9-6 at intermission.
Air Force football was handed a 29-13 setback at #7 Michigan Saturday afternoon in front of a crowd of 111,387 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Nordin kicked two more field goals, late in the third and early in the fourth, to share a single-game school mark with three players. He hit from 26, 29, 35, 36 and 49 yards out and is now 11 for 13 this season, which leads the Big Ten. The defense remains fierce and entertaining - holding the Falcons to 232 yards of offense and only one touchdown on a busted coverage. The usually unflappable MI quarterback looked considerably flapped late in the third quarter Saturday while an equally flummoxed home crowd booed the Wolverines offense for the second straight week. Jim Harbaugh gave him another chance this week, and Peoples-Jones took advantage of it. The defense has scored three touchdowns and Donovan Peoples-Jones returned a punt for a score against Air Force.
MI will begin conference play next week when they travel to play Purdue in their first true road game of the season.
- Dad Jokes (@_DadLife) September 16, 2017The quarterback that literally NEVER throws has more touchdown passes than Wilton Speight. He has completed just 54.5 percent of his passes this season and had some accuracy issues again on Saturday.
After plowing through their first two opponents easily, the Michigan Wolverines survived one of the strangest games of the season to remain undefeated in 2017.
After starting the season as Michigan's lead running back, sophomore Chris Evans received just five carries last week against Cincinnati, rushing for 15 yards. He did not receive another carry until late in the fourth quarter and finished with six carries attempts for 30 yards.
