Michigan vs. Connecticut: Wolverines Survive Upset Scare for 2nd Consecutive Week
Things continue to deteriorate for the Michigan Wolverines.
One week after a close encounter with the Akron Zips (a team that has went 3-33 since 2010) in which Michigan hardly held on for a win in Ann Arbor while quarterback Devin Gardner threw three interceptions, the Wolverines were at it again on the road against Connecticut.
The winless Huskies of the AAC gave Michigan all it could handle, but 10 unanswered points for Michigan allowed the Wolverines to take back the lead and win 24-21.
Gardner once again had a questionable performance, throwing for just 111 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. Not only did Gardner throw two interceptions, his fumble in the third quarter was recovered by Ty-Meer Brown and returned for a touchdown.
The Wolverines defense, which had a horrific outing against Akron, was iffy at best as it only surrendered 180 total yards, but had issues keeping Connecticut out of the endzone.
The long bright spot for Michigan was running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and his 120 yards and two touchdowns.
After its close win over Akron last week, Michigan dropped several spots in the ranks and the same appears to be in the cards here. For the second week in a row the Wolverines have had issues moving past an unranked opponent and the rankings will reflect that in a big way.
Michigan now moves to 4-0 and kicks off Big 10 play against Minnesota next week as the schedule gets extremely tough the rest of the way.
