Josh Hicks is getting work in the secondary tonight...

After going back and forth for a few drives, including a Rutgers fumble recovery, Michigan finally strikes first thanks to Jabrill Peppers’ insane speed and skill.
Peppers’ huge gain set up a four yard touchdown for Ty Isaac
7-0 Blue 7:44 left in the first
Laviano is now 1/8 for 6 yards and Rutgers has a grand total of 4 yards
Wilton Speight makes a beautiful throw in the corner of the end zone to Jehu Chesson for a Michigan touchdown
14-0 Michigan 4:27 left in the first
On 3&11, Chris Laviano gets sacked for a huge loss. Rutgers is now 0/5 on third downs tonight
With the quarter winding down the Rutgers defense showed up and forced a punt after a solid punt return by Jabrill Peppers
Rutgers gets pinned at the one on the punt, though.
Zach Allen is in for the drive as Robert Martin gives the offense some breathing room
Allen makes a good run on third down for the first down but loses the football. Michigan recovers within easy scoring range.
End of the 1st Quarter Michigan 14 Rutgers 0
The first play of the quarter goes directly to Peppers who waltzes in for the score
21-0 Blue 14:55 left in the half
Khalid Hill gets a one-yard touchdown to put Michigan up 29-0 as Garrett Moores gets the two-point conversion
Rutgers at 4&14 as Allen misses an over-the-middle throw. This may get Ohio State ugly
Amara Darboh with a huge reception for the Wolverines to bring them in close scoring range yet again.
Rutgers forces a fourth and goal, and Harbaugh goes for it. Khalid Hill is initially ruled short, then as they came in closer, ruled it a touchdown
Jabrill Peppers gets the direct snap yet again and scored yet again to put Michigan up 43-0
This is Ohio State ugly
It is 43-0 at halftime in Piscataway. Needless to say I am disappointed as are all Rutgers fans. I expected more fight than this
After a half of no first downs, Rutgers continues to struggle with Zach Allen at the helm, despite his ability to use his legs
Rutgers goes three and out to start the half as Allen gets sacked on third down
John O’Korn comes in at quarterback for Michigan to get some good reps
O’Korn and Freshman back Chris Evans get the Wolverines deep into Rutgers territory
O’Korn gets the ball to Khalid Hill for the touchdown
Michigan is up 50-0 10:28 left in the quarter
Our defense is bad. Our offense is worse.
Zach Allen looks really bad. He is always under pressure and he is always rolling out.
Granted our receivers are not open and the line is terrible, but we need better quarterback play
Shane Morris is in to play, their third string and the starter ahead of Giovanni Rescigno in high school
Chris Evans breaks a huge run for the Wolverines. Karan Higdon gets the 15-yard score for Michigan
57-0 Big Blue
Can I go home now?
Every time I get hope for a first down, we get a false start and need to punt
Rutgers is 0/14 on first down and has 16 total yards...
Rutgers gets a much needed pick six, but it gets overturned upon further review due to the ball hitting the ground before the interception. This team cannot catch a break.
End of three 57-0 Michigan
Bobby Henderson, on third down, runs for thirteen yards and a touchdown.
64-0 Michigan. Still a whole quarter to go
Zach Allen gets drilled as the offensive line gives him no time yet again. This is disgusting and barely qualifies as football
Higdon gives Michigan their eighth rushing touchdown of the night and allows Michigan to eclipse 70.
WE GOT A FIRST DOWN!! Trey Sneed has a nice carry to finally move the chains
Why is Michael Cintron so bad at punting. Michigan has had field position past the thirty seemingly all night long
Ty Isaac scores again for the ninth rushing touchdown of the night.
Please do not let them hit 80...
Trey Sneed picks up another first down, only the second for Rutgers who has yet to hit 50 total yards on offense
