No. 7 MI uses 5 FGs, punt return to beat Air Force

Michigan Football is Seriously in Trouble

The Wolverines came out of the locker room and immediately scored on a 79-yard punt return by freshman Donovan Peoples-Jones to take charge 16-6.

Air Force quarterback Arion Worthman (2) stretches for extra yards on a carry in the first quarter of an NCAA college football game against MI in Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.

Wilton Speight threw for 169 yards without a touchdown.

The Wolverines (3-0) didn't lead by more than three points until Peoples-Jones' touchdown early in the third quarter, and late scores turned a closely contested game into a relatively lopsided score. "They fooled us. We thought we had the look we wanted and as soon as I went down to focus on the snap, they brought the house".

The Wolverines offense has seen a few bright spots.

"It felt like there were 13 guys out there sometimes", Worthman said.

Air Force was held to 237 yards of total offense as the Falcons couldn't keep pace with No. 7 MI in a 29-13 loss Saturday in Ann Arbor, Mich. It may not have cost MI a win today, but at some point, that trend can not continue if the Wolverines are going to make a run for the Big Ten championship this fall. He hit from 26, 29, 35, 36 and 49 yards out and is now 11 for 13 this season, which leads the Big Ten. MI kicker Quin Nordin converted all five of his field goal attempts. However, in the spirit of trying to be positive, the Wolverines did finish the game with a touchdown drive. Running back Ty Isaac does have nine carries for 61 rushing yards, but MI is now being outrushed as a team by the Falcons. He was slow to get up after getting tackled on his last carry in the fourth quarter and didn't return, but replacement Karan Higdon didn't think it was a serious injury.

ABOUT AIR FORCE (1-0): Arion Worthman threw for 172 yards and a career-high two touchdowns while adding another score on the ground against VMI to help the Falcons register the second-highest margin of victory in program history.

Speight completed two pass plays of at least 30 years early in the second quarter but MI had to settle for Nordin's 26-yard field goal. He said Air Force disguised its defense well.

"They're a stout group. Their size, their athleticism, they're a pretty complete group".

For the third straight week, Michigan's offense continued to sputter at best, leaving some questions for the Wolverines as they prepare to enter Big Ten play next week. The Falcons will entertain San Diego State next Saturday night.
