It's taken six weeks, but Michigan finally looks like Michigan.
After struggling with Akron and UConn, the No. 19-ranked Wolverines (5-0) decided to wake up Saturday during their 42-13 homecoming win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers (4-2) at The Big House in Ann Arbor.
Rusty in the first half, quarterback Devin Gardner's solid second-half offering helped Team 134 put up 28 points on the Gophers, who trailed 14-7 at the break. The redshirt junior was interception- and fumble-free for the first time this fall.
Sophomore tight end Devin Funchess had seven catches for 151 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter.
In the middle of his third year as head coach of Michigan, Brady Hoke can now rest assured knowing that his perfect home record remains intact at 18-0.
The Wolverines haven't lost to Minnesota since 2005 and have won 22 of the past 23 battles for the Little Brown Jug.
