Keon Sabb adds to defensive dominance with Michigan's 2nd pick-6 vs. Minnesota
Keon Sabb is the latest Michigan defender to make a huge play in Week 6. The defensive back picked off Minnesota QB Athan Kaliakmanis and returned it all the way for a score, Michigan’s 2nd pick-6 of the day.
Sabb secured the INT around Minnesota’s own 30-yard line and scurried into the end zone untouched to put the Wolverines up 45-10. The Wolverines have never trailed in this one and are putting the finishing touches on a dominant outing.

The first pick-6 of the game came right after kickoff with Will Johnson scoring just 12 seconds into the game. That start was a sign of things to come, as the Michigan defense has been smothering all night. Sabb and Johnson’s interceptions were their first of the season.

With just under 10 minutes left in the game, the Golden Gophers have accumulated just 129 yards of offense. Only 52 of those yards came through the air.
The Wolverines will improve to 3-0 in B1G play and 6-0 overall after finishing up the Week 6 blowout. The next team on the schedule will be the Indiana Hoosiers in Week 7 as the Wolverines try to stay perfect.
