We told you earlier that Northwestern and Michigan were playing a hilariously bad contest today. Even with some points, the second half topped the atrocious first. More poor special teams, muffed punts and interceptions weaved throughout the half. Northwestern started one drive off an interception at the Michigan 15, went backwards, punted, and gave the Wolverines the ball on the 20.


But the last play, displayed in the above gif, sums it up beautifully. Down 10-9 after a biblically improbable touchdown, Pat Fitzgerald (or his evil twin?) pulled a complete 180-degree turn, and decided to go for a two-point conversion and the win. Quarterback Trevor Siemian literally just fell down. And that was the game.
