Michigan 38, Northwestern 31 -- final, OT

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.
