When Michigan welcomed Northwestern to the Big House in Ann Arbor on Saturday, the unbeaten Wolverines weren’t expecting to find much resistance from the 3-3 Wildcats, but at the half they lead just 10-7.

The Wolverines have been off for a couple weeks, and the offense appeared to be a bit rusty. Up 10-0, it was the defense that tripped up, allowing an Evan Hull, 75-yard touchdown run with 2:34 left in the half to cut the lead to three.

But the Michigan offense responded. After driving downfield in 11 plays and covering 75 yards, wide receiver Mike Sainristil pulled in a 1-yard pass from quarterback Cade McNamara on the Wildcats 3-yard line. But Sainristil coughed up the ball which was recovered by Northwestern with just 18-seconds left in the half.

The play brought out some emotional reactions for the Michigan fans.
