Michigan was lucky to escape with a 28-24 win Saturday over Akron.
The Zips hadn't won on the road since 2008, but they certainly didn't play like a team that was intimidated by the Wolverines or The Big House. Down to the wire, the game was decided on a last-second pass by Akron quarterback Kyle Pohl, which fell incomplete as the clock expired.
Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner threw for 248 yards, two touchdowns and three picks during the worst two halves of the season.
Akron came to play. Michigan didn't. It's as simple as that. Although they're 3-0, Saturday's game proved minor deficiencies could be major problems for Team 134.
