Momentum swing after injury to Michigan's Peters? No, Wisconsin was just better

Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor runs past Michigan's Josh Metellus during the second half of an NCAA college football game Saturday Nov. 18 2017 in Madison Wis

It left the third quarter in serious trouble. However, the matchup against Wisconsin was only his third start of the year. The last time MI travelled to Wisconsin in 2009, quarterback Scott Tolzien led the Badgers with five all-purpose touchdowns en route to a 45-24 blowout victory.

Hornibrook persevered despite throwing his 13th interception of the season in the second half against the Wolverines (8-3, 5-3 Big Ten). MI (8-2, 5-2) has won three in a row since being routed by Penn State on October 22.

MI mustered 234 yards of total offense. The run game had done nothing all game, totaling just 58 yards on 37 carries (that's an average of 1.6 yards per carry). Wisconsin had negative-7 yards through nine-plus minutes of the third quarter, but Hornibrook (9-19, 143 yards) found A.J. Taylor deep for a 51-yard pass.

Wisconsin's Rafael Gaglianone nailed a 30-yard field goal to secure the win.

From there, though, everything fell apart. Entering Saturday's action, he had thrown for 329 yards and four touchdowns while completing 60.9 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 149.6 through four games. He was taken off the field on a cart. MI finished the game with John O'Korn at quarterback. When the smoke cleared, it was 21-10 and the Badgers were in control.

Since then, the Wolverines have been shut out in three trips, 2005, 2007 (the "Chad Henne noodle arm game") and 2009. This play put the Badgers in the lead 7-0 at the end of the first quarter. But Michigan's hopes seemed to fall apart when Peters' offensive line missed a stunt up the middle - which resulted in him being leveled on a throw. It's tuneup week for rivalry weekend, which means, somehow, the best game on the slate is Michigan-Wisconsin, followed by, um, Navy-Notre Dame. Michigan's defense will be the best Wisconsin has seen.

MI outgained Wisconsin in the first half, but also lost a fumble on the Badgers' 1-yard line and gave up a sloppy 50-yard punt return score in the first half.

When all was said and done, the Badgers won the game 24-10, dropping MI to 8-3 on the season.

The Wolverines have had their problems this season: youth, injuries, growing pains.

What it means: MI will head into its regular-season showdown against Ohio State with more questions at quarterback (injuries to Peters and Wilton Speight) and a stagnant offense.
