    Kicker Jake Moody continues to deliver for Michigan Wolverines

    Lincoln, Neb. — Michigan kicker Jake Moody said last week during an interview session with reporters that he often visualizes success.

    There are nights when he can’t fall asleep and thinks about all sorts of game scenarios.

    “Like kicking a game-winner in the Big House against Ohio State,” Moody said.

    It wasn’t the rivalry game against the Buckeyes, but in Saturday’s primetime matchup against Nebraska at raucous Memorial Stadium, Moody was 4-for-4 on field goals. He hit a 31-yarder to tie the game late in the fourth quarter and then a 39-yarder with 21 seconds left to lift Michigan to a 32-29 victory.

    The win preserves ninth-ranked Michigan’s unblemished 6-0 record.

    “The Northville kid,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said after the game when asked about Moody’s reliability. “It’s been the confidence, the preparation.”

    Moody gave the Wolverines their first two scores of the game with kicks from 35 and 21 yards in the second quarter. He is 12-for-13 this season, with his only miss coming from 47 yards against Rutgers, a kick he said last week felt good off his foot.
