ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The Michigan spring game came down to the final play as the maize team stuffed the blue team on a two-point conversion to walk away with a 14-13 victory in the Michigan spring game on Friday.

The Michigan Insider's Josh Newkirk and Sam Webb breaks down the spring game.

QB Play: The storyline of the quarterback battle was John O'Korn vs Wilton Speight. Both players showing some fleet-footed moves, O'Korn picked up multiple first downs with his leg. Shane Morris, in an unexpected move, lined at wide receiver during most of the game. However, Morris found himself being involved in the offense as he caught a reverse pass and threw it to a wide open Drake Johnson for the touchdown to open the scoring. The blue team threw for 177 yards and the maize team threw for 82.

Running Game: Ty Isaac was the clear leader of the running backs, finishing with a team-high 78 yards on the day and looked good doing it. O'Korn also added 34 yards.

Defense shines in the clutch: With the game on the line, the maize team stood tall and came up big when it needed it the most. The defensive line stuffed an attempted run by fullback Henry Poggi to seal the victory. O'Korn, who also had a flair for the dramatics, set up the game-winning attempt with a six yard touchdown scamper.

Scoring Breakdown:

- Shane Morris pass complete to Drake Johnson for 9 yards for the blue team.

- Wilton Speight pass complete to a wide open Jake Butt for a touchdown for the maize team.

- Wilton Speight runs for six yards for the touchdown for the maize team.

- John O'Korn rushes for a six yard touchdown.
