Chaundee Brown scored 18 of his 19 points in the second half and Mike Smith had 16 points and eight assists to lift the 25th-ranked Wolverines over Bowling Green 96-82 on Wednesday in the season opener for both teams.
The Michigan Wolverines have owned Rutgers over the past five games but it took three overtimes to win again. As for the Lions, well, it was never close.
Michigan had to switch quarterbacks, go three overtimes and play roughly 4 1/2 hours to avoid the football program's worst start in 53 years. It was worth it.
This was a chance for the Wolverines to show the world in prime time that their two straight losses and 1-2 start were merely a fluke, and that the talent Jim Harbaugh so often preaches about is there and with better execution, with early success, they could right the ship. On Saturday night that vessel never had a chance to leave the harbor. Joe Milton threw two first-quarter interceptions, the first of which was a deflection and the second that hit Badgers linebacker Leo Chanel right in the numbers, and while the picks looked very different the result was very much the same as Wisconsin came away with a touchdown.
Inexperience is showing as the Wolverines fall to 1-2 after a 38-21 loss to the Hoosiers.
