    The Winning Continues
    Michigan beats in-state stepchild 20-17.

    True (FR) Aaron Hunter makes first career interception and touchdown.
    New year, new team. As this unit stepped onto the field, it felt great to put together pieces from last year's champions and this year's new ones.
    The biggest question mark was how would we survive without #16 at the helm? Well, we did, sort of. Devin Gardner isn't #16 but he is capable of making a play and has a better arm. Gardner went 9-17 for 120 and threw 1 mistake that ended up as an interception. He connected with Joe Reynolds over the top in the 1st quarter for a beautiful strike. Justice Hayes won the battle between the runningbacks for the starting position but that didn't mean others wouldn't get reps. Thomas Rawls ran 9 times for 18 yards and Justice carried 13 for 62 yards.
    A new receiving core has not changed or may have improved. With a brand new weapon at tight end in incoming FR Jon Parsons. Parsons led the way with 5 catches for 60 yards. The Wolverines felt that if they lost a piece to their offense they should add another dimension.
    Defensively, we gave up way too many yards to a less than average offense. I don't know if it was jitters, the lack of experience or the beer in me. We decided to start a couple of the incoming true freshman guys just because we feel the team needs a new identity. Guys like Ashton Tatum, Aaron Hunter and Darrius Jackson all saw the field and made impacts. FS #2 Aaron Hunter being the biggest, made his first career interception on a spectacular jump and ran it back for his first career TD. Tatum and Jackson both made sacks.
    In the end, SR K Brendan Gibbons made the season saving kick from 35 yards out with just over a minute to play. He is going to have to be on point for us this year, in a year with an offense looking for an identity.

    Pitt Pulls the Upset

    Pitt came out in this game knowing they wanted to make a good first impression and they would. The game would not start off the way they wanted as Tennessee would take back the opening kickoff for a TD. The Panthers would get on the scoreboard with two FGs made by their Freshman kicker Scott Stratton. That would be all the scoring for the first half. Pitt would get another FG to start the second half to give them their first lead 9-7. The Vols would respond with a 37 yard TD pass to put themselves pick up 14-9. Pitt would have a long drive to grab the lead back. This drive would be finished off with Isaac Bennett 3 yard td run. The Panthers secondary would fail again on the next drive and they would give up a 83 yard td pass but the Vols scored too fast. The offense would grind one more good drive out and with 49 seconds left Bennett would get his second TD run of the game. Tennessee would get the ball back but would end up throwing a INT to Mason.
    Final Score:
    Pitt 24
    Tennessee 21
