ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan (5-6) wanted a win for many reasons Saturday.
12 seniors took the field at Michigan Stadium for the final time but all left the tunnel with a 23-16 loss to Maryland (7-4).
Senior quarterback Devin Gardner was as healthy as he's been since early in the season showing nice wheels as he rushed for 82-yards and a touchdown. The problem for Gardner was the passing game.
Dealing with drops and under pressure most of the day, Gardner completed 13-of-24 passes for just 106-yards, including an interception.
The lone bright spot offensively was sophomore running back Drake Johnson, carrying the ball 14 times for 94-yards, including a long of 17.
In the end, a block in the back took a touchdown away from Dennis Norfleet while a roughing the kicker penalty gave Maryland four more points in the fourth quarter, too much for Michigan to overcome.
