The Michigan Wolverines came into their game today against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights leading the nation in rushing and their first drive showed exactly why they are alone at the top. They took 17 plays, used 7:46 of the clock, and sustained a drive of 76 yards, capping it with a 1-yard run by their powerful running back, Hassan Haskins.

This drive was pure “Old School Michigan football,” ramming the ball down the throat of their opponent until they stop it. More of this, please..
Michigan gonna do what it does until someone stops it. Opening drive: 74 yards, 17 plays, 15 of them runs. Haskins plows the final yard. Used half of the first quarter. Michigan 7, Rutgers 0.
