ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Northwestern had today’s game won with 18 seconds left and then it all disappeared.
Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner heaved a pass down the field and wide receiver Roy Roundtree caught the deflection to set the Wolverines up with a field goal to tie the game. The kick was good and Michigan (7-3, 5-1 Big Ten) scored a touchdown in overtime to beat No. 24 NU 38-31.
The Wildcats (7-3, 3-3) scored on their opening possession, becoming the first team to do so on the Wolverines defense all season. NU held a 10-point lead in the third quarter and the 3-point advantage late in the fourth quarter. Even after Michigan took a 28-24 lead, NU scored to retake the lead.
