No. 9 David Ojabo’s forced fumble against Rutgers

David Ojabo has been a pleasant surprise for the Wolverines and he’s got incredible potential as a pass rusher that he’s just starting to realize.

While Ojabo forced a fumble against Wisconsin, which was a big play in its own right, on a day that he finished with 2.5 sacks, the play that stands out more was against Rutgers.

Michigan was in trouble against Rutgers and led just 20-13 when the Scarlet Knights had the ball and faced a 2nd-and-10. Rutgers ran the ball and Ojabo spun away from the offensive tackle, made the stop, and forced a fumble, which U-M recovered to ice the game.

It’s the kind of play great defenses make and Ojabo is becoming a huge part of that.

No. 8 J.J. McCarthy’s first career touchdown pass

While this throw by J.J. McCarthy came late in a game that was already decided, it was still an incredible throw and the 69-yard bomb to Daylen Baldwin, his first of two 50-plus yard touchdowns in the first half of the season, offered a glimpse into the future.

Few quarterbacks in the country can make this throw, which is why fans can’t help but clamor for more, even though Cade McNamara had been extremely effective.
