Michigan Survives vs. IN in 27-20 Overtime Victory

It was an ugly game that saw MI commit 16 penalties for 141 yards lost, but the Wolverines did just enough to run their record to 5-1. "Karan started the game, and we leaned on him heavily. This was a big game for our team". IN came right back, driving downfield before the Wolverines blocked a field goal attempt and returned it deep into Hoosier territory.

On Indiana's lone possession of overtime, it was able to get down to the MI three-yard line, before a fourth-down heave into the end zone was intercepted by junior safety Tyree Kinnel, sealing the victory.

The rushing game was a bright spot, though, racking up 271 yards. Three plays resulted in a 3 yards lost, setting up fourth-and-goal at the 4.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Will Grier threw four of his five touchdown passes in the second half and West Virginia overcame an 18-point deficit to get the win.

IN coach Tom Allen, on the goal line stand: "When you get that close to the goal line, as insane as it sounds, it can be very challenging, especially as good as they are in their front". "They left it all, out there and played a good football team". I will take responsibility for whatever didn't happen. "They whipped us up front the last couple of plays". The last time MI was penalized 10 times or more was at Penn State when the Wolverines had 13 for 117 yards. The Hoosiers last beat MI in 1987.

IN already proved to be a tough test for the Ohio State Buckeyes in the season opener so the Wolverines knew not to underestimate the Hoosiers. On offense, freshman quarterback Peyton Ramsey has emerged as a dual threat talent throwing and running the ball.

Ryan Finley completed 14 of 25 passes for 198 yards and a 3-yard touchdown to Jakobi Meyers late in the third quarter to put N.C. State ahead to stay.
