Alex Hornibrook, Wisconsin silence critics in 24-10 win over MI


The Badgers (10-0) enter Saturday undefeated and will look to keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive.

MI quarterback Brandon Peters has been carted off the field with an injury in the third quarter of 19th-ranked Michigan's game Saturday against No. 5 Wisconsin.

The game was tied at 7 at halftime after mistakes cost MI a chance to lead.

That led to a 39-yard field goal, giving MI a 10-7 lead with 6 minutes, 36 seconds remaining in the third quarter. The Wolverines totaled just 65 yards of offense in the second half, taking a brief lead on a 39-yard field goal by Quinn Nordin. Three plays later, this time on third-and-16, Hornibrook stepped up to avoid pressure and fired a pass through a tight window to Taylor for a 24-yard touchdown.

MI was trailing Wisconsin 14-10 at the time of the injury - but now trails 21-10 with 24 seconds to go in the third quarter. O'Korn was 2-of-8 for 19 yards. Wisconsin returned a punt for a touchdown and MI fumbled at the 1-yard line. The redshirt freshman took several minutes to sit up.

That came one drive after the Wolverines wasted a major opportunity for another touchdown.

When the 6-foot-5 Peters first enrolled at MI, head coach Jim Harbaugh compared him to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, whom Harbaugh coached at Stanford.
