After an Ibraheim Campbell interception, the Wildcats would drive to the endzone again. Freshman running back Treyvon Green capped off the drive with a touchdown.
The Wolverines drew first blood on an eight-play, 74-yard drive, which was highlighted by a 48-yard pass from Denard Robinson to Junior Hemingway.
