Instant Classic

Wow...what a finish. The Wolverines win one of the wildest games in Big House history in a fantastic way to christen night games here in Ann Arbor. Denard started 2/11, then finished 9/13 to lead a thrilling come-from-behind victory. Denard put up 446 yards of offense, 338 in the air with 4 TDs and 3 INTs and 108 yards rushing with one TD (that's 948 yards alone in the last two games against Notre Dame for Shoelace). Hemingway had a massive 165 yards on three receptions, and one 43 yard TD. Tommy Rees was Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, with 315 yards passing and 3 TDs, but 3 TOs (2 INT, 1 fumble). But the most stunning aspect of the game was the final 1:12: 21 yard TD pass to Vincent Smith for Michigan's first lead of the game, 28-24, then at :30 Notre Dame re-takes the lead with a 29 yard TD pass to Theo Riddick to make it 31-28, before Denard finds Jeremy Gallon for a 64 yard pass to put Michigan on the 16 with 0:09, and then with 0:02 left
finds Roy Roundtree for the 16 yard TD pass to win the game. More to come this week on Extra points and Daily Sports Reports...
