    Michigan’s defense digs in, offense closes on strong note

    Lincoln, Neb. — Michigan leads 13-0 at halftime at Nebraska with two field goals from Jake Moody, but the Wolverines have to be kicking themselves for leaving points on the field.

    The first scoring drive was set up by a stunning interception by Dax Hill.

    Hill made the play on his back, intercepting Adrian Martinez with 12:47 left in the second quarter to give the Wolverines the ball at the Nebraska 35-yard line. This was Hill’s second straight game with an interception.

    Michigan ran the ball each play but was stopped at the Nebraska 17-yard line and came away with the 35-yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead.

    Michigan quarterback Cade McNamara (12) passes the ball during the first half at Nebraska on Saturday.

    Late in the half, after Hassan Haskins ran 3 yards to convert a first down, Cade McNamara completed a 48-yard pass to Mike Sainristil to the Nebraska 6-yard line. But on third down at the 1-yard line, Haskins’ 1-yard touchdown was negated after a review showed McNamara’s knee was down before he made the handoff. The Wolverines settled for another field goal.

    With 1:37 left in the half, Michigan looked efficient as it drove 76 yards on 11 plays and finally got in the end zone on a 3-yard run from Haskins. Nebraska was called for a pass interference that gave Michigan the ball at the 3-yard line.
