College Football Recap
Monday, 2006 October 2 - 8:12 am
Michigan 28, Minnesota 14.

Michigan 28, Minnesota 14. Another solid win for the Wolverines this Saturday. The offense was clicking on all gears, rolling up 234 yards rushing and 284 yards passing. Minnesota found itself in a dilemma: they couldn't stop Mike Hart using seven players, but if they rolled up a safety to support the run, Michigan's receivers could burn their one-on-one coverage for big plays.

Defensively, Michigan did give up 108 yards rushing, its highest total all year. But for the most part, Minnesota wasn't able to "run the ball effectively" (a phrase Lloyd Carr likes to use), meaning that weren't able to use the running game to keep themselves in manageable down-and-distance situations. The result? Minnesota was 3 of 12 on third-down conversion attempts, and Michigan ended up with a 15 minute time-of-possession advantage.

The only sour note of the day: after a first-and-goal from the 3 yard line, Michigan failed to convert, missing a short field goal.

Grades: Offense A, Defense B+.

Ohio State crushed Iowa 38-17, cementing their hold on the #1 national ranking.

Georgia Tech upset 11th-ranked Virginia Tech 38-27. This might make Georgia Tech the front-runner for the ACC title.

USC survived a scare from Washington State, 28-22.

In the SEC, Auburn and Georgia both survived close games against South Carolina and Mississippi State, respectively. Florida beat Alabama 28-13, avenging last year's loss.

U did not say anything about NC State fans urinating in the stands. Why don't you break that down for us?
