WATCH: Michigan smothers Florida with blocked punt
It’s been a low-scoring first half in Atlanta, but Michigan has already made a few big plays in the game.
First, it was an impressive pass-and-catch from Shea Patterson to Donovan Peoples-Jones to get the Wolverines on the scoreboard in the first quarter. Then, in the second quarter, the Michigan special teams unit came up with a huge play.
Michigan swarmed Florida punter Tommy Townsend and J’Marick Woods was able to block the kick. The block gave the Wolverines excellent field position, setting up a field goal attempt.
