Michael Barrett got two impressive interceptions in the game In Michigan’s 52-17 domination of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Barrett explains what happened in both plays.

On the first one, Barrett was glad to make a play when his team needed it the most.

“The feeling was amazing,” said Barrett. “Finally getting my hands on the ball, finally being able to make that play. Especially when the team needed it the most. I saw him, but I didn’t see the ball. I couldn’t really do anything other than catch it.”

Barrett’s second interception of the game was a pick-six. He was extra motivated to score after his teammates gave him a hard time for not scoring on the first one.

“A lot of the guys were getting on me for not scoring the first one,” said Barret. “I was thinking: ‘Yea we still got a lot of time left, let’s go get another one!’ Once I saw it was tipped, I knew I was definitely scoring this one.”

The Michigan defense, which is one of the best in the country, put the hammer down on the Rutgers offense holding quarterback Gavin Wimsatt to 166 yards and 3 interceptions. It was a big day for Barrett and the defense.
