Week 10: Michigan 28 - Michigan State 7

Postby dooolos » Sun Jul 30, 2006 7:16 pm

EAST LANSING (AP) – The Michigan Wolverines secured their first Bix Six championship with a solid performance on both sides of the football. This matchup of hard hitting in-state rivals started off with dominating defense forcing fumbles left and right. The first half alone saw four turnovers on 3 fumbles and an interception. As the game wore on, however, the Michigan offense began to pick up the pace while the MSU offense struggled all game long just trying to get past the line of scrimmage. The Michigan defense ends up holding the Spartans’ spread offense to just 58 total yards and 1 first down. Michigan finishes 8-2.

Michigan took the opening kickoff, and was putting together a steady drive when the usually sure handed Kevin Grady got the ball stripped by an MSU linebacker:

Just two plays later, however, the Michigan defense stripped scrambling MSU QB Bryan Hoyer of the ball, recovering around midfield:

Michigan worked its way into the red zone, and finally got on the scoreboard early in the second quarter with this short pass to WR Mario Manningham. 7-0 Michigan.

On the following kickoff, MSU goat Terry Love coughed up the football deep inside MSU territory:

Just a few plays later, RB Kevin Grady finds the endzone, 14-0 Michigan:

The Michigan D continued to harass Hoyer’s attempts to scramble and pass, eventually leading to this INT by DB Morgan Trent to close out the half:

MSU opened up the second half with their best drive of the game. However, once they got inside the Michigan 10 yard line the defense was able to contain the nimble Hoyer again, forcing this turnover on downs:

Image

The Michigan offense answered back with a long 90 yard drive on some strong runs by RB Kevin Grady, capped by a short TD pass by QB Jason Forcier. 21-0 Michigan.

MSU’s offense was defined on the following drive, as WR Terry Love just was not able to pull in the countless rainbows thrown by his 19 PS QB:

Image

Grady tacked on this short TD, his 2nd of the game and 13th rushing TD of the season [Holy MUNOZ!] to make it 28-0:

Image

The lone MSU highlight came on defense when DL(!) Clifton Ryan took this fumble and rumbled with it 96 yards for the Spartans only score:

GG Flo. Hope to see you next season in the TCS!

Congrats! Also, thanks for making my prediction come true!: http://www.sois.com/tcs/dammit/bigsix5.html

Michigan still has an outside chance at the NC game, but has to hope for a few losses by other contenders. Still, you definitely deserved the bowl berth this season.

Shit, Hoyer is human. My team needs a playmaker or two.
