Research Notes

  • NEXT LEVEL: Michigan scored a touchdown on all four of its red-zone trips on Saturday, with Devin Gardner accounting for every score. The Wolverines have scored a touchdown on 23-of-27 red-zone trips with Gardner at quarterback in his seven career starts. Gardner has accounted for 19 of those touchdowns, and has not committing a single turnover.

  • NEXT LEVEL: After completing 56% of his passes thrown 15 yards or longer last week against Temple, Tommy Rees struggled on such throws Saturday against Michigan. Rees barely completed 30% of such throws against Michigan, including going 0-for-5 in second half.

  • NEXT LEVEL: Devin Gardner made the Fighting Irish pay when they brought four or fewer pass rushers, completing more than 80% of passes against a standard pass rush. His go-to receiver was Jeremy Gallon, who had 143 of his career-high 184 yards in those situations. When the Irish did blitz, Gardner committed his only turnover of the game and completed less than 50% of his passes.

  • Brendan Gibbons has now made 15 straight field goals, setting the Michigan record for consecutive FG made. Previous record was 14 set by Remy Hamilton in 1996.
