WATCH: Michigan uses fake punt to keep drive alive vs. Army

Michigan Football may have not wanted to dip into the bag of tricks this early in the season, but they found themselves needing a lift on Saturday vs. Army in the form of a fake punt in the first quarter to set up a scoring drive.

On the play, freshman safety Daxton Hill noticed he was uncovered, which let to a direct snap to Mike Barrett, a former high school quarterback, to toss Hill the ball for a gain of 25 yards on fourth down.

The drive would be capped off by the first rushing touchdown of Zach Charbonnet’s young career.
