No. 3 Daxton Hill’s diving interception

Daxton Hill is on the list for the second time this season, which underscores my point in another post that he should have been a midseason All-American.

Hill has two interceptions this season but this one against Nebraska was one of the best plays you’ll ever see. Not only does he bat the ball up in the air, but he also finds a way to catch it while falling to the ground.

If you want to beat teams on the road, you need your best players to step up, and against both Nebraska and Wisconsin, Michigan football’s two biggest wins, Hill made impact plays — the kind of plays Charles Woodson and other Michigan greats used to make.

No. 2 Roman Wilson’s 41-yard catch

Michigan football fans should remember this play fondly. It was third-and-10 with Michigan leading 13-10 and while there were a ton of key plays in that win, this was a big one.

Showing absolutely no fear, McNamara goes long on third and long, and even though he underthrew Wilson a little, the sophomore receiver came back to the ball and made one of the best catches all season.

Michigan scored a few plays later and went on to win 38-17. This was one of those plays that changed the momentum and helped key a 6-0 start.
