Wolverines surge in second quarter, hold on to win
Written by Matt Pargoff   


Michigan scored three touchdowns in a four-minute span at Maryland during the second quarter, seizing a stranglehold on the Terrapins with still more than a half to play. That second half wasn’t a pretty one for the Maize and Blue, being both outgained and outscored, but tough redzone defense and a final Chris Evans led scoring drive locked up a 35-10 victory.

Evans carried the ball 15 times for 80 yards and two scores in the game, adding two receptions for 29 yards. But the Wolverines left the game with some concerns about the ground game heading into the final stretch, with Karan Higdon’s 10 carry, 50 yard effort cut short by an apparent ankle injury.

Tyree Kinnel led the Michigan defense with 10 tackles, including six solo stops, while Maurice Hurst Jr. had nine tackles, including 1.5 for a loss.

Improving to 8-2 on the season, Michigan will travel to undefeated Wisconsin next week before playing host to Ohio State a week after that.
