JJ McCarthy throws first interception of 2022 as Indiana snuffs out dangerous drive by Michigan
Indiana was locked in a head-to-head battle with Michigan on Saturday, taking the lead early in the game.
The Hoosiers were keeping it close in Bloomington, even though the Wolverines entered the game against the Hoosiers as a 23.5-point favorite.
The Wolverines had a slow offensive start against a stout Indiana defense, struggling with third-down conversions and having a field goal blocked. Michigan’s defense also struggled, giving up big chunks of yardage and 4 third-down conversions to the Hoosiers.
Although the Wolverines were fighting back after halftime, the Hoosiers came to play for four quarters. As Michigan entered the red zone and QB JJ McCarthy attempted a TD pass, Indiana picked off the QB, crushing the Wolverine’s drive. It was the first interception of the season for McCarthy.
Watch the Hoosiers kill the Michigan momentum:
