Big Second Quarter Helps Michigan Dominate Hoosiers

The 21st-ranked University of Michigan football team cruised past the Indiana Hoosiers, 41-14, in front of 110,580 fans on Saturday (Nov. 12) at Michigan Stadium. Following an early Indiana touchdown, the Wolverines scored on three of their first four possessions en route to 41 unanswered first-half points.

Senior receiver Steve Breaston (North Braddock, Pa./Woodland Hills) led the way for the Wolverines in the first half, tallying 201 all-purpose yards. In total, Breaston was responsible for three catches for 46 yards, one rush for 30 yards and 125 total return yards. Throwing to Breaston was sophomore quarterback Chad Henne (Wyomissing, Pa./Wilson HS), who completed 17 of 24 passes for 174 yards and three touchdowns while seeing only first-half action. Sophomore Kevin Grady (Grand Rapids, Mich./East Grand Rapids), who averaged 6.7 yards per carry in the game, amassed 94 yards on 14 carries and punched in two touchdowns.

Junior linebacker Prescott Burgess (Warren, Ohio/Warren G. Harding HS) forced the only Indiana turnover on the day, swiping a pass in the second half and returning the ball for 21 yards. Sophomore linebacker Tim Jamison (Riverdale, Ill./Harvey Thornton HS) and junior linebacker Shawn Crable (Massillon, Ohio/Washington HS) registered back-to-back sacks on the second Hoosier drive of the third quarter.

Hall Earns Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week Award

The Big Ten Conference Office announced today (Monday, Oct. 31) the selection of University of Michigan junior cornerback Leon Hall as the league's football Defensive Player of the Week for his play in the Wolverines' 33-17 victory at No. 21 Northwestern on Saturday (Oct. 29). This is Hall's first career weekly award from the conference.

Hall was second on the team with six tackles (four solos) at Northwestern and set a Michigan record with an 83-yard touchdown return on a fumble to give Michigan a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. On the play, Hall forced the fumble, got up, scooped up the ball and ran 83 yards for the first defensive score of the season for the Wolverines. He also added a tackle for loss against the Wildcats.

Hall helped spearhead Michigan's defense that held Northwestern to its fewest points of the season. The Wolverines held the Wildcats scoreless in the second half and limited the nation's No. 4 offense to 94 total offensive yards in the second half, including four negative-yardage series in the third and fourth quarters. U-M thwarted a pair fourth-down plays in the final stanza and forced four three-and-outs in the second half. The Wildcats never ran more than six plays in any offensive series in the second half and had just one possession with seven or more plays the entire game, a nine-play drive in the second quarter that ended with a 28-yard field goal by Joel Howells.

The touchdown was the first defensive score for the Wolverines in 2005 and it was Hall's second career TD. He returned a punt 76 yards for a TD at Indiana a year ago. Hall is fourth on the team with 46 tackles this season, including three tackles for loss, two sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He shares the team lead in pass breakups (seven) and interceptions (two).

Hall joins Mike Hart (offense, Oct. 3, following Michigan State game) and Steve Breaston (co-special teams, Oct. 17, following Penn State game) as Michigan's Big Ten weekly award winners this season.

Wolverines beat #21 Northwestern 33-17

the No. 25 University of Michigan football team downed its third nationally ranked opponent of the Big Ten Conference season, defeating No. 21 Northwestern by a 33-17 score Saturday night (Oct. 29) at Ryan Field. The Wolverines (6-3, 4-2 Big Ten) held the ball for a season-best 38:01 and gained a season-high 253 yards on the ground, and the defense held the Wildcats (5-3, 3-2 Big Ten) scoreless in the second half.

Junior tailback Jerome Jackson led the Wolverine offensive attack with his first career 100-yard rushing game, carrying the ball a career-best 24 times for 105 yards. Freshman tailback Kevin Grady added 64 yards on 20 carries. Sophomore quarterback Chad Henne finished 17-of-30 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown. Senior wide receiver Jason Avant returned to his home state and caught a team-leading five passes for 67 yards.

Defensively, the Wolverines held the Wildcats scoreless in the second half and collected three turnovers in the game. U-M forced five straight three-and-outs by Northwestern in the second half and stopped two fourth-down plays in the fourth quarter. Junior inside linebacker Prescott Burgess led the team with seven tackles, one tackle for loss and one pass breakup. Junior cornerback Leon Hall added six stops, one forced fumble and an 83-yard fumble return for a touchdown.

Trailing 25-21 with 53 seconds on the clock, the Wolverines drove 53 yards for the game-winning score.
