Michigan 38, Northwestern 31 -- final, OT

Kenny Demens made a spectacular tackle on 4th-and-2 in overtime, stopping Wildcats running back Tyris Jones in his tracks and giving Michigan a 38-31 win at The Big House in Ann Arbor.

Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner started for the second consecutive week, building on a 234-yard performance this past Saturday against Minnesota with 286-yard showing against Northwestern today.

Michigan did a suitable job containing Wildcats stars Venric Mark and Kain Colter, who accounted for 282 combined yards and a pair of touchdowns.
