11:40: After one first down, Chase Winovich knocks down a 3rd and 8 attempt for SMU and the Mustangs will punt.

11:22: Patterson steps up the pocket and fires a pass over the middle to Oliver Martin. Almost picked but it slips through the linebacker’s hands and falls into Martin’s lap for a first.

9:35: Patterson sacked on third down and Michigan will punt.

6:52: Gary gets through on the 3rd and 10 blitz. Can’t bring down Ben Hicks but forces him to throw it away and SMU will punt again.

4:32: Patterson gets good protection on the play action and drops a dime for a 32 yard pickup to Gentry.

2:12: Michigan goes for it on 4th and 1 from the SMU and 15 and Evans punches it up the gut for a first.

Second Quarter

13:57: Michigan gets the stop on a QB keeper on 3rd and 11 and SMU will punt. Defense is performing but that was basically a given, considering SMU’s offensive woes through two weeks.

5:12: SMU attempts an onside kick but Michigan recovers and will take over at its own 40.

0:45: Bryan Mone takes Hicks down for a big sack.

0:00: One play after committing a PI, Josh Metellus jumps the out route and takes the interception back 73 yards to the house, weaving through defenders as the clock ran out. That’ll mask some of Michigan’s struggles through one half. 21-7 Michigan.

Third Quarter

14:52: Devin Bush comes across the top to make a nice pass breakup on 2nd down but he’s down and being looked at by trainers.

1:40: William Brown hits James Proche on a fade in the corner of the end zone but Proche is ruled out of bounds. Would have been an incredible TD catch.

1:36: On the next play, Brown rolls out and hits Proche in the flat for a touchdown. This one will stand but the extra point is no good. 28-13 Michigan.

1:36: SMU goes for another onside kick but it’s recovered comfortably by Josh Ross for Michigan.

1:23: Good pass protection again on the play action and Patterson hits Peoples Jones in stride for a 41 yard touchdown.?35-13 Michigan.

1:12: And it’s a third pass interference penalty in the last two defensive drives for Michigan, this time against Lavert Hill on a deep ball down the right side.

Fourth Quarter

10:25: Evans finally gets a big hole up the middle and takes it 35 yards.

4:34: Patterson looks to go downfield on 3rd but doesn’t find anyone open so scrambles for an 18 yard pickup. Shows his wheels there.

0:51: Brown completes another big pass to Proche over the middle, this time for 36 yards before Josh Ross brings him down.

0:20: Kwity Paye demolishes Brown as he throws but it’s ruled offside. That follows a questionable roughing the passer call against Michigan on the previous play and SMU is in the Michigan red zone.

0:00: 4th and 5 pass from the 19 intended for Proche falls incomplete and this one is final. Final score: 45-20 Michigan.
