Game ball for week 3 win over Air Force

Game ball for week 3 win over Air Force

MI redshirt senior QB Wilton Speight completed just 14 of 23 attempts for 169 yards in the school's 29-13 win over Air Force on Saturday.

Nordin tied the MI school record with his fifth field goal - a 36-yarder with 14:15 remaining on the clock.

People-Jones gathered in Charlie Scott's 53-yard punt, weaved around defenders and eluded Scott's tackle attempt at the 10 to give MI a 16-6 lead 1:09 into the second half. The Falcons were within three points midway through the third quarter before the Wolverines pulled away late.

Saturday? The Falcons averaged just 3.4 yards per carry, totaling 168 yards from five different players.

I keep coming back to this, but with each week it becomes more relevant: At some point, MI is going to play a better team that won't let it slip by with such awful efficiency in the red zone.

"I feel good", he said.

Wilton Speight threw for 169 yards without a touchdown. The offense was in the red zone four times, failing to tally a touchdown. The head coach also wasn't looking to be to introspective about Michigan's offensive struggles, at least for public consumption. We just challenge ourselves to keep pushing. He barely stepped out of bounds, nixing what would have been a 62-yard TD bolt.

Nordin was true on a 29-yard field goal with 2:59 to go in the third for a 19-13 bulge, which stood through the end of the period.

Running back Chris Evans also fumbled the ball on the team's second drive of the game. Only two seconds remained in a first quarter that roared by like the T-38 Talons in the pregame flyover. Quarterback Arion Worthmann had a big 34-yard run in the second quarter to tie the game up at 6-6 shortly before halftime.

On a list of things that could make you fall asleep on a Saturday afternoon, how often is it that a MI football game is up near the top?

The teams traded field goals throughout the first half and the Wolverines emerged with a 9-6 lead.

"Whatever they call me out to do, I'm going to do to the best of my ability", Nordin said.

The offense is still not where it needs to beMichigan Wolverines running back Karan Higdon (22).

Peoples-Jones' touchdown was the first of his career. When DPJ was asked about his punt return touchdown after the game he added, "I felt really comfortable, my punt return team did a great job blocking, it really made my job very easy".

His 79-yard flight gave MI separation, at 16-6.

Another shanked Air Force punt set MI up at the Falcons' 43, and the Wolverines drove to the 8. Nordin will continue to be a savior throughout the season, especially with the red zone woes. Michigan's defense rose up for a stop, and Strebel hooked a 29-yard field goal attempt wide left.
