  • What’s the matter with Michigan’s offense

MI defeated IN on Saturday afternoon IN overtime, 27-20.

The Maize and Blue got the ball first in overtime, and junior running back Karan Higdon ripped off a 25-yard touchdown run on the first play to put MI up by seven. IN will have to get creative if it wants to score on Michigan's top-10 scoring defense and find ways to get the ball to running back Morgan Ellison, receiver Simmie Cobbs Jr. and tight end Ian Thomas.

This marked Michigan's 22nd consecutive victory over IU and 37th triumph in the last 38 contests between the two.

West Virginia (4-2, 2-1) beat a ranked opponent for the first time in 10 tries. The sophomore bounced off of a Hoosiers defender and scampered 25 yards to the corner of the end zone.

In overtime, the Wolverines had first possession and immediately scored on their very first play on a Higdon 25-yard run for a 27-20 edge.

The Hoosiers cut Michigan's advantage to 20-17 with just 3:27 left in the game.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Nyheim Hines ran for an 83-yard touchdown and returned a punt 92 yards for another score on his way to 249 total yards, helping North Carolina State to its sixth straight victory. Griffin Oakes tied it for IN (3-3, 0-3) with a 46-yard field goal as time expired. After missing an onside kick recover by a shoestring, IN forced MI to its seventh third-and-out of the day.

A week ago, turnovers plagued Michigan's productivity in a loss to Michigan State.

IN had its best field position so far after three penalties were called on MI on a single play with 2:30 remaining until intermission. That's a program record and more than doubled the yards they gained through the air. Higdon had, by far, the best game of his career, compiling a career-high 200 yards and three touchdowns.

Fifth-year senior quarterback John O'Korn was just 10-of-20 for 58 yards, and averaged a minuscule 2.9 yards per pass.

The Wolverines are 5-1 with championship hopes still intact.

The Wolverines travel to No. 4 Penn State next week for a primetime showdown.
