ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: How Michigan got 3 penalty flags on the same play

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: How Michigan got 3 penalty flags on the same play

That something allowed No. 17 MI to dodge a road bullet at Indiana.

Higdon ran 25 yards for a touchdown on the first play of overtime for No. 17 MI and Tyree Kinnel intercepted a fourth-down pass in the end zone on the final play as the Wolverines held off in 27-20 on Saturday. Just in the first half, MI had 11 penalties for 98 yards, and in had four for 50.

"I got the ball, saw the hole was clogged, and I needed to make something happen".

"The last game left a sour taste, ' Higdon said".

Fifth-year senior center Pat Kugler admitted going the wrong way on the game-winning play.

"Those are some of the things we have to grow (with) and improve on", Harbaugh said after his team's 27-20 overtime win at IN on Saturday. "It's football, so you've got to make something happen".

Indiana's losing streak to MI is now 22 games, but the last two times the Wolverines have come to Bloomington it has gone to overtime. Even after Higdon scored, IN had a chance to tie it and extend an already nerve-fraying afternoon. They drove to the MI 1-yard line, where they were thrown back twice before harried quarterback Peyton Ramsey heaved a final throw into the end zone that junior safety Tyree Kinnel picked off.

Michigan, ranked 17th after dropping 10 spots following the loss to Michigan State last week, is now 5-1, 2-1 Big Ten.

"He was phenomenal, " MI coach Jim Harbaugh said. "We went to the running game which was good for us all day". "The goal-line stand was great - an opportunity to keep them out of the end zone and win the ballgame".

"That just comes down to all the hard work that we've been putting in during the offseason as a defense", sophomore defensive end Rashan Gary said. "There looked like there would be a tackle for loss or a small gain or no gain, and he would get 4 or 5 yards out of it".

Lavert Hill improves: MI sophomore cornerback Lavert Hill is starting to come into his own. "I was just happy we won the game".

IN used the final 1:05 to drive 42 yards on six plays, including a game-tying 46-yard field goal by Griffin Oakes, making it 20-20. The Wolverines had 329 yards of offense. It nearly slipped away.

MI could not get a first down and with 1:11 and punted.

Higdon finished with 200 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries for MI (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) on another day when the Wolverines struggled to sustain drives.

MI finished with a program-record 16 penalties for 141 yards, breaking the old mark of 15 set against UCLA all the way back in 1981.

First, two MI players went offside: defensive tackle Maurice Hurst (No. 73) and defensive back Khaleke Hudson (No. 7). On that drive, O'Korn kept the drive alive when he avoided a tackle and found Donovan Peoples-Jones for a third-down conversion.

Harbaugh called it a "Houdini" play, one of the few successful MI aerial strikes. MI ran for 246 yards and Higdon had 25 carries for 200 yards. The Wolverines are now 500-203-18 in Big Ten play.

IN finally got on the board with 1:46 left in the half.

Michigan's defense, at one point, was flagged for three penalties on one snap.

Suddenly, a game the Wolverines had controlled defensively hung perilously in the balance. Michigan's four possessions in the third quarterback were inefficient and ineffective and produced three, three-and-outs.

Like a bolt out of the blue, Higdon changed all that.

With an absent pass game and despite a near-record in penalties, MI went to the ground and let Karan Higdon carry the day offensively. "We weren't doing anything different than we always do". On Saturday, the Detroit King product picked up a attractive sideline interception against Indiana's Peyton Ramsey. The Hoosiers have one victory (1987) against MI since 1967. Favorable field position after a long punt return allowed Ramsey to hit Whop Philyor for an 8-yard touchdown pass with 3:27 left in regulation. In the end, Michigan's defense wouldn't give an extra yard.

"I love these players, and our coaches who give so much, " IN coach Tom Allen said. "It's tough to convert against those guys, for sure". "During that last drive, it was like the game was on us".

Higdon's final run was not well blocked. He also blocked an IN field goal attempt and proved disruptive all day long for the Hoosiers' offensive line. He posted three pass breakups last week against Michigan State.
