22 Nov President Jon Cartu Proclaims Michigan vs. Rutgers score: Live game updates, college…
Things are getting particularly tense between Michigan and Rutgers with the Scarlet Knights up 17-7 at halftime on Saturday night. Michigan’s first five possessions of the game included a fumble, a turnover on downs, two punts and a missed field goal. Nothing was working offensively early on, so starting quarterback Joe Milton was replaced by Cade McNamara in the second quarter. The sophomore hit on a big play early with a 46-yard touchdown to Cornelius Jackson and has provided a spark, but there’s still work left to be down in the second half.
Meanwhile, quarterback Noah Vedral has played a clean game for Rutgers, completing 14 of 21 passes for 162 yards as the Scarlet Knights are the latest team to take aim at beating Michigan with a downfield passing attack.
Michigan is in a rough spot at 1-3 coming into Saturday night’s road trip to Piscataway, New Jersey, to face Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights got the first year of Greg Schiano’s return opened with a win against Michigan State, but has seen three straight losses since. Michigan, meanwhile, has matched that with a win at Minnesota to open its 2020 schedule and the ensuing three losses coming to Michigan State, Indiana and Wisconsin. If you did a blind taste test, these are two football teams with fairly similar profiles, but the fact that they are so close is why Michigan is in a rough spot.
How things go in the second half will be a determining factor in the conversation around Jim Harbaugh and Michigan this week, for the rest of the month and the rest of the season.
