Momentum swing after injury to Michigan's Peters? No, Wisconsin was just better

Michigan is steaming over this failed TD drive with a controversial ruling

The true freshman's rushing total for the season is at 1,657 yards.

What's known as the "Brett Bell game" ended with a punt hitting the Badgers' defensive back, who was covering it at the time, and kicker Hayden Epstein sneaking a kick between the uprights.

On Saturday, Michigan squared off against Wisconsin in a meaningful game for both teams.

MI seemingly tied the game in the second quarter on a Brandon Peters pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones in the end zone, but officials decided there wasn't enough evidence to overturn what was ruled an incomplete pass when one foot landed in the end zone and the other landed out of bounds nearly simultaneously.

Going into Saturday, O'Korn had played in six games this year, throwing for 742 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions while completing 55.2 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 103.1. Peoples-Jones reeled in a 48-yard catch to spark the drive, as Peters started to get into a rhythm in the biggest start of his young career.

After missing opportunities in the first half, the Wolverines used a Quinn Nordin 39-yard field goal to move in front 10-7 with 6:36 to go in the third.

Peters completed 9 of 18 passes for 157 yards. If U-M quarterback Brandon Peters can make some plays, MI wins the game.

The vast majority of the Wisconsin-Michigan rivalry has been all Wolverines (they hold a 50-14-1 all-time edge).

The Badgers held MI to just 58 rushing yards in the game, while getting 132 rushing yards from star freshman tailback Jonathan Taylor. Badgers freshman C Tyler Biadasz started against MI.

Suddenly, quarterback Alex Hornibrook became a problem.

After redshirting a year, Hornibrook turned in a solid freshman campaign with 1,262 yards and nine touchdowns to seven interceptions. Hornibrook suddenly caught fire after the turnover, connecting with A.J. Taylor for 51 yards on a third-and-13, then firing a 24-yard touchdown to Taylor on third-and-16.

While Hornibrook's numbers against MI don't jump off the page, he came up with a couple of huge throws in key situations to lead the Badgers to a win.

Rutgers is 8-2 ATS this season and Indiana's flat out not a good football team. As long as he's healthy, the Wolverines should feel optimistic for the future with Peters leading a stacked roster.
