Michigan came into today's game against Indiana needing a win in the worst way, and they got one.
The Hoosiers helped the Wolverines out early, turning the ball over twice in the first quarter as Michigan took the early 10-0 lead. Quarterback Devin Gardner led another long drive in the second quarter, extending the lead to 17-0 at the half.
Indiana got on the board with a field goal in the third quarter, but Michigan's defense proved to be too much for the Hoosiers to overcome as the Wolverines cruised to the easy win.
Turning Point: Indiana gave Michigan all the momentum when their star running back Tevin Coleman fumbled the ball on each of his first two carries. That led to an early 10-0 lead early for the Wolverines, which Indiana was never able to recover from.
Key Stat: Michigan's defense dominated this game from start to finish, holding Indiana's offense to only 188 total yards - including just 24 yards passing.
Michigan MVP: Running back Drake Johnson provided Michigan's offense with a much-needed spark, rushing the ball 16 times for 122 yards and two scores.
Indiana MVP: No one on the Hoosiers played well - their offense only scored 10 points, and their defense couldn't maintain a terrible Michigan offense.
What’s Next? Michigan will look to get back to .500 on the season next weekend at Northwestern, while Indiana returns home to face Penn State.
