Best College GameDay Signs From Week 12: Wisconsin vs. MI

Michigan is steaming over this failed TD drive with a controversial ruling Refs rob Michigan of a clear touchdown vs. Wisconsin (video)

However, the matchup against Wisconsin was only his third start of the year.

The second half was a different story as No. 5 Wisconsin flexed their muscle a bit, and when MI quarterback Brandon Peters went down with injury, it was just a formality. MI (8-2, 5-2) has won three in a row since being routed by Penn State on October 22.

As expected, both defenses dominated in the early going, with neither offense getting inside the 40-yard line in the first quarter. The run game had done nothing all game, totaling just 58 yards on 37 carries (that's an average of 1.6 yards per carry).

Peters had completed nine of 18 passes for 157 yards before being replaced by John O'Korn.

That mistake helped give MI its first lead at 10-7, as sophomore Quinn Nordin drilled a 39-yard field goal.

From there, though, everything fell apart.

Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook threw his normal interception, giving him 12 for the season. Peters appeared to hit the turf with his shoulder and then his head after he released a third down pass that fell incomplete.

This game could have been vast had U-M not screwed up and given away a game to a mediocre Michigan State team.

In the letter, Jones also refers to "severe threats of retaliation" from fellow owners that "demonstrate the dysfunction of the current process".

Wisconsin's next drive required five plays, as Kendric Pryor took a reverse 32 yards to make it 21-10 with 24 seconds left in the quarter. The Wolverines defense had been so concerned with stopping the run, and doing a good job of it until that point, that it forgot about the passing game. He broke three tackles on that score that gave Wisconsin a 7-0 lead with 1:15 left in the first quarter.

For Michigan to beat undefeated Wisconsin on Saturday, most agreed the Wolverines had to play their best game of the season against the Badgers. The offensive line struggled to protect again and couldn't do much on the ground against a stout Wisconsin defense.

What's known as the "Brett Bell game" ended with a punt hitting the Badgers' defensive back, who was covering it at the time, and kicker Hayden Epstein sneaking a kick between the uprights.

In the last eight meetings between the teams, each school has won four times.

The Wolverines have had their problems this season: youth, injuries, growing pains.

MI and their fans may hate Ohio State, but for now, they are cool with the Badgers.

Harbaugh is 1-4 against his top rivals.
