Northwestern had this game in the bag and somehow this happened. Aside from what seemed like dozens of dropped interceptions, the defense had Devin Gardner stopped on fourth-and-four rush with under two minutes left but two defenders ran into each other and he slid away, getting a first down and extending the drive in the process. Then this happened.

On third-and-23 Michigan passed just off the sideline, staying in bounds, to the Northwestern 27 and with 10 seconds left the field goal unit scrambled onto the field and kicked a game-typing field goal.


Gardner promptly threw a touchdown on the first possession of overtime.
