Bo knows touchdowns: Melton burns Michigan defense for easy 61-yard TD
Just moments after Giles Jackson returned the second-half opening kickoff 95 yards, Rutgers responded right back to extend their lead to 24-14 over Michigan.
Bo Melton absolutely shredded Michigan’s secondary early in the third quarter with this 61-yard touchdown reception:

With that catch, he now has four receptions for 85 yards in the game (for now). He’s also averaging over 21 yards per reception in the game.
This was also Noah Vedral’s first passing touchdown of the game and the sixth passing touchdown of the season for him.
Coming into this game, Melton had been one of the Scarlet Knights’ best players on offense. He had 20 catches for 334 yards and four touchdowns and his longest reception was 66 yards.
Last season was the best season of his career so far as he had 30 catches for 427 yards and two touchdowns.
After this touchdown though, Michigan was able to respond right back with a touchdown of their own to cut the deficit to 24-21.
