Michigan 24, UConn 21 (Final)

Fitz Toussaint rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns as the Wolverines escaped with a 24-21 victory Saturday over UConn in East Hartford. 

The Huskies got within 1:48 of beating a third ranked opponent, but quarterback Chandler Whitmer got 26 yards on a fourth down when he needed 29.

Blake Countess' tackle all but sealed the deal. The Huskies finished with 206 yards of offense, with 159 yards and two touchdowns coming from Whitmer, a sophomore who transferred from Illinois. 

In Week 3, Michigan struggled its way to a 28-24 win over Akron at The Big House. Team 134 was once expected to be a power in the Big Ten, but two straight lackluster showings against lower-tier opponents raises serious doubt about the Wolverines' legitimacy.
