Michigan Survives vs. IN in 27-20 Overtime Victory


MI travels to IN to take on the Hoosiers on Saturday.

The Wolverines held a 20-10 lead with just under four minutes left, but were unable to keep it. Here's the latest MI vs. IN game recap with top performers, statistics, and a look at what's up next on the schedule. IN will have to get creative if it wants to score on Michigan's top-10 scoring defense and find ways to get the ball to running back Morgan Ellison, receiver Simmie Cobbs Jr. and tight end Ian Thomas.

MI running back Karan Higdon scores a touchdown during the first half an NCAA college football game against IN in Bloomington, Ind., Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017. IN booted a field goal as time expired in regulation but got a touchdown on their first possession in overtime and stopped the Hoosiers short of the goal line on the ensuing possession.

The No. 17 Michigan Wolverines were able to survive more offensive struggles and a late rally from the Indiana Hoosiers in a 27-20 overtime road victory on Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington. The Hoosiers got to the two-yard line but they couldn't convert.

Higdon had 200 of the 258 rushing yards for the Wolverines today.

Michigan's defense was dominant once again, holding the Hoosiers to just 278 yards, including 80 on the ground. However, Tyree Kinnel came up with the end zone interception to prevent a second overtime from happening.

This won't alleviate any long-term concerns for the MI faithful who hope and pray Harbaugh will stay and win in Ann Arbor for a long time.

The Wolverines travel to No. 4 Penn State next week for a primetime showdown.
