In the second quarter of a 7-7 tie between the Michigan Wolverines and Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Jim Harbaugh inserted redshirt freshman Brandon Peters into the game to take over the offense.
Peters replaced John O’Korn, who was 3-for-6 for 13 yards in the game. Peters led an eight play, 77-yard touchdown drive that ended with a Karan Higdon 10-yard run. Peter was 3-for-3 for 37 yards in his first drive of the day.
