Michigan football comes back

Michigan’s offense, which has sputtered all day long, finally found new life behind Cade McNamara and senior running back Hassan Haskins. As Michigan began picking up first downs, Beaver Stadium once again grew quiet.

After moving the ball just across midfield in only five plays, Michigan took control of their fate once again. As Cade McNamara dropped back and dumped it off in what seemed like a routine check-down, tight end Erick All had other plans. All would turn up field and take it 47 yards to the house, giving Michigan a 21-17 lead with only 3:29 remaining in the game.

As Penn State would take back over, the Nittany Lions once again struggled to move the football. Michigan’s defense would quickly force Penn State into a fourth and short, which they would not be able to convert.

After picking up a couple of first downs, the Wolverines would go into victory formation. On third down, Cade McNamara would take a knee for the final time, sealing the game for Michigan and improving the Wolverines to 9-1.
