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.
"Honestly, we had the looks that we (wanted)", running back Chris Evans said. This week, they beat MI by two touchdowns.
"Sometimes adversity helps us play even harder and better". "We need to get better at it. (Wisconsin) had a three-man pick stunt that was effectively holding our center".
For all the hand-wringing about Jim Harbaugh's inability to beat Ohio State and Michigan State early in his tenure, the Wolverines will be among the nation's top teams next season if the injury to Peters isn't too serious. Badger quarterback Alex Hornibrook is not a running threat and UW is banged up at receiver. Big Ten-leading rusher Jonathan Taylor had trouble finding holes.
"They didn't do anything different, we just beat ourselves, up front especially", MI defensive lineman Aubrey Solomon said.
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. The Badgers expected Hornibrook to do a lot more this season after Corey Clement graduated, and he's responded with 1,863 yards and 17 touchdown passes heading into Saturday's action. The Wolverines defense had been so concerned with stopping the run, and doing a good job of it until that point, that it forgot about the passing game. "I know they're going to do everything they can to go get the ball for me". "That led to them getting the points and getting on the board".
MI mustered 234 yards of total offense.
The Wolverines weren't discouraged and drove 84 yards on their next drive to tie the game on a Ben Mason touchdown run heading into the half. "Very similar-type defenses, and so you don't want to panic".
And then there were the mistakes (and bad breaks) that cost MI in the first half.
The Badgers rolled in the first touchdown of the game thanks to Nick Nelson, who scooped up a 50-yard punt return. Peters' freshman-like play trying to stretch for a touchdown, several yards short, and fumbling the football away.
MI blew its chance at amassing a lead in the first half.
Hornibrook needs to cut down his interception rate against better competition but adds an explosive element to the Wisconsin offense that wasn't there last season.
