JJ McCarthy has seen a lot of action on Saturday, and not all of it has been contained to the playing field!

Facing Nebraska, McCarthy and the Michigan offense started the game on fire. It culminated with 28 first-half points and a 35-0 start for the Wolverines in Lincoln.

As a result, McCarthy has spent a fair amount of time on the sidelines with Michigan’s backups entering the game in the third quarter. McCarthy’s time on the sidelines is a bit of extra rest before the meat of the B1G schedule, but it hasn’t all been downtime for the quarterback.

One shot from the TV broadcast captured McCarthy with a kiss for his girlfriend, all while the action on the field continued. To be fair, the game is far from dramatic, so it’s hard to blame the QB for enjoying his time on the sidelines.

We’ll see if McCarthy is asked about the incident after the game, but Michigan is soon to be safely to 5-0 after a resounding victory against Nebraska.
