MI wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (9) returns a punt for a touchdown in the third quarter of an NCAA college football game against Air Force in Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.
MI kicker Quinn Nordin (3) watches his point after kick attempt in the fourth quarter of an NCAA college football game against Air Force in Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017. Last week MI knocked off Cincinnati on the strength of a 133-yard rushing performance from running back Ty Isaac. We want first down, second down, third down, out.
Air Force quarterback Arion Worthman (2) stretches for extra yards on a carry in the first quarter of an NCAA college football game against MI in Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017. The offense, however, has been the bigger problem for the Wolverines, though they should be able to take advantage of an Air Force defense that is playing 10 new starters from a season ago. He went 5-5 on field goals today, making a 49 yarder look simple in the first half. "They did a great job of not clipping". It lasted less than two minutes. It added three more against Air Force. MI did have 359 yards of offense, but was not able to convert solid drives into touchdowns.
Brady says improvement, not magic plays key against Saints
But aside from 2008, when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Patriots' opener, he's avoided serious injury. I don't really think it's a healthy thing for a body to go through that kind of aggressive all the time.
MI has had 10 drives inside opponents' 20, including four against the Falcons, and has scored only one TD with those opportunities.
It also had a first-and-goal midway through the fourth quarter, trailing 22-13. The red zone remained a flashing stop sign, but Nordin tied the MI record with his fifth boot through the uprights.
MI didn't end a drive with an offensive touchdown until 1:02 remained in the game.
TV: Noon, ET, Big Ten Network. Plenty of question marks remain, but at least not via a crash landing.
Sophomore linebacker Devin Bush led the defense with 11 tackles and on two occasions smothered a rare pass attempt before Air Force's Arion Worthman had a chance to look downfield. He came through with a pair of TFLs, putting on the sort of pressure that kept Air Force from getting off the ground.
