    Michigan vs. UNLV

    Final Score: Michigan 28, UNLV 7

    1. Michigan had no problems, starting out with a five-yard De’Veon Smith touchdown catch in the first, and rolling with a 36-yard Jahu Chesson scoring dash along with a 76-yard Ty Isaac run in the second.

    2. The Wolverines took a 28-0 lead on a Sione Houma touchdown run in the fourth, and then they took their foot off the gas a bit.

    3. UNLV finally got on the board in the fourth on a six-yard Devonte Boyd touchdown catch to cap a 75-uasrd drive.


    – The Wolverines got the ground game going for the second week in a row. The line generated a decent push for most of the game, but it took a few big runs to crank up the average. They’ll take a 254-yard rushing day.

    – Jake Rudock completed 14-of-22 passes for 123 yards and a score with a pick

    – Ty Isaac ran eight times for 114 yards and a 76-yard score, and De’Veon Smith ran 13 times for 33 yards


    – The defense held up relatively well, but the offense continues to sputter and cough. There’s no ground attack, at least not a steady one, and keeping the chains moving was a problem. The offense needs more playmakers than WR Devonte Boyd.

    – Blake Decker came back from a groin injury and completed 8-of-16 passes for 96 yards with a touchdown and two picks.

    – The Rebels averaged just 2.6 yards per carry. Keith Whitely ran 13 times for 29 yards.
