MI 29, Air Force 13

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh talks and quarterback Wilton Speight listens

The Wolverines gave up just one completion - a 64-yarder to receiver Ronald Cleveland that went for the Falcons' only touchdown of the game.

After plowing through their first two opponents easily, the Michigan Wolverines survived one of the strangest games of the season to remain undefeated in 2017. The final score belies the fact that the Falcons stayed within striking distance late into the fourth quarter and left the crowd in Ann Arbor concerned for an offense that has lacked creativity, explosive plays and the ability to finish drives.

The Wolverines had four trips to the red zone on Friday and failed to score a touchdown.

Seventh-ranked MI looks to work through its growing pains when it hosts Air Force on Saturday.

Nordin kicked two more field goals, late in the third and early in the fourth, to share a single-game school mark with three players. Nordin's 10 field goals through three games will likely be the most in college football when the weekend comes to a close.

MI is 3-0 heading into conference play, but the Wolverines should not feel comfortable with how they stand heading into the Big Ten schedule. Right now, they are carrying the offense through its sluggish start. Worthman was 1 of 7 and his replacement, Nate Romine, threw an interception on two attempts.

People-Jones gathered in Charlie Scott's 53-yard punt, weaved around defenders and eluded Scott's tackle attempt at the 10 to give MI a 16-6 lead 1:09 into the second half. He finished the game with 156 all-purpose yards.

Nordin then easily made a 49-yard field goal with only 4 seconds remaining in the second period to put MI up 9-6 at intermission.

Speight's performance came under fire last week and will likely draw a fresh batch of criticism.

MI football improved to 3-0 with its 29-13 win over Air Force on Saturday.

Responsibility for the difficulty getting the ball consistently into the hands of the Wolverines' young playmakers, though, should fall as much on the coaching staff. MI struggled to find any rhythm in its calls. The offense has yet to look anywhere near reliable.

MI doesn't need to put up 40 points on most weekends to keep its title hopes alive.

The University of MI football is coming off a home opener, 36-14 win over Cincinnati Bearcats, all thanks to the MI defense which held the Bearcats to just 200 yards of total offense.

The teams traded field goals throughout the first half and the Wolverines emerged with a 9-6 lead.
