U-M added on to its early lead thanks to 3 Moody field goals from 31, 26 & 34-yards, respectively, and a 7-yard touchdown run from Corum. The Wolverines went into halftime with a commanding 23-0 lead.

Michigan continued its dominant defensive effort on the first drive of the third quarter, as Mike Morris forced a fumble and DJ Turner returned it for a 45-yard touchdown to push the lead to 30-0.

U-M's ground game controlled action throughout the contest with four of the Wolverines' touchdowns coming on the ground. Corum's first-half touchdown was added to by a 20-yard J.J.

McCarthy scamper in the third quarter, while scores from Donovan Edwards and Alex Orji from within the 10-yard line in the fourth put the exclamation mark on the day's performance.
