Hearing the quarterback whispers, McCarthy earns purposeful gametime

As the clock started rolling in the third Michigan made a quarterback change on their first drive of the stanza. J.J. McCarthy took to the gridiron for his first action since the Northern Illinois blowout. He, along with McNamara, helped lead a drive that was capped off with a trip to the endzone by the freshman phenom himself.

McNamara came back in to put the Badgers down for good with a couple of scoring drives afterwards.

Then when the outcome was decided, McCarthy re-entered the contest to make the return trip back to Ann Arbor a successful one. In his only attempted pass of the showdown, the result ended up being a perfectly placed ball that was caught in stride for a touchdown to Daylen Baldwin.

At the conclusion of the outing Dan Villari and Alan Bowman entered and saw a few snaps. Unfortunately the only thing that went wrong for Michigan football on the afternoon was that Bowman through a pass that got picked off. It is officially the first turnover of the season even if it happened in garbage time.
