    Utah @ Michigan

    This game went from slow pace in the first half, to a shootout in the second half. The game went into double overtime. In the second overtime, Utah went for it on 4th and very long and failed. Michigan scored on the very next play on a 25 yard game winning TD run up the middle, untouched.

    The Wolverines must have been excited at the firing of Gucci Mane and the hiring of Corey Volting because they came out and executed to perfection on both sides of the ball. On offense, Denard Robinson had an amazing game, firing 3 TD passes and running another 3 in himself.

    Senior center and team leader, All American center David Molk said "We're happy to have a true Michigan Man coaching this team. I just wish he started the season with us. That other guy didn't care about us, and didn't care about football."

    When asked about his hiring, Corey Volting said "I'm where I belong. This team will do great things in the next few years and beyond."

    IOWA 10

    The Wolverines walked into a hostile Kinnick Stadium as underdogs, but looked confident nonetheless. After a trouncing of the Boilermakers last week, and with full confidence in their new head coach, they had every reason to believe they could compete in this tough division game.

    On offense they had a hard time moving the ball in steady doses, as the Iowa defensive line seemed to be up to the task. However they did what they needed to stay in the game, as Denard Robinson finished the game with 195 yards passing and 81 yards rushing. Stephen Hopkins pounded the ball between the tackles all game for 113 yards on a whopping 27 carries.

    The true story of this game was the UM defense who were flying around the field and always on the ball. The Wolverines sacked Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg 5 times with 3 of those sacks coming from junior defensive end Craig Roh. Adding to Vandenberg's woes was sophomore free safety Carvin Johnson who intercepted two passes, both near the red zone, sealing Iowa's fate.
