MI (2-0) opened the scoring on the first drive of the game, taking a 7-0 lead with 11:54 left in the first quarter on a 43-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Wilton Speight to sophomore wideout Kekoa Crawford.

His stat line ended up being quite good, going 17-of-29 passing (58.6 percent) for 221 yards, two touchdowns and no picks. Keep an eye out for how many rushing yards MI might have the ability to install on Cincinnati after 215 contrary to a Florida defense. Crawford had 83 yards on four catches and Perry had 66 yards on four catches.

MI didn't stretch its lead to more than 14 points until the fourth quarter, and there were a few anxious moments in between.

MI didn't skip a beat on defense despite replacing 10 starters as Don Brown's unit registered six sacks and forced three turnovers while holding the Gators to 192 yards of offense. The drive was extended when MI converted on fourth-and-eight on a 20-yard pass from Speight to Kekoa Crawford putting the Wolverines at the Bearcats' 12. He didn't make his first appearance in the game until Michigan's possession at the end of the first quarter.

With just less than seven minutes, MI added a safety when the punt snap sailed into the end zone, and was batted out for a 33-yard loss.

MI fumbled three times Saturday, losing two. The second quarter didn't go well.

Cincinnati running back Mike Boone made headlines early in the week by predicting that the Bearcats would "shock the world" in Ann Arbor. The next MI possession, Grant Perry appeared to make a miraculous third-down catch, but after a review, officials ruled it an incompletion although it looked like it bounced off his hand into his arms.
