No. 9 Michigan boots late field goal to edge Nebraska

Jake Moody kicked the game-winning 39-yard field goal with 1:24 left to lift No. 9 Michigan to a 32-29 win at Nebraska on Saturday in Lincoln.

Moody tied the game at 29-29 with 3:00 left on a 31-yard field goal, and then the Wolverines (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) recovered a fumble by Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez to set up his game-winner.

After a scoreless first quarter, Michigan opened the scoring with 9:52 left in the second quarter on a 35-yard field goal by Moody. The Wolverines then took a 6-0 lead with 3:19 left in the second quarter on a 21-yard field goal by Moody, which capped off an 11-play, 87-yard drive.

Before the end of the half, Michigan drove the field and took a 13-0 lead with nine seconds remaining on a 3-yard touchdown run by Hassan Haskins.

Nebraska (3-4, 1-3) responded on the opening drive of the second half, cutting Michigan’s lead to 13-7 on a 46-yard touchdown pass from Martinez to Austin Allen with 12:49 remaining in the third quarter.

Later in the third quarter, Michigan regained a double-digit lead, going up 19-7 on a 3-yard touchdown run by Haskins to punctuate a 10-play, 91-yard drive.

A 2-point conversion pass failed.

Nebraska immediately responded, going 75 yards in five plays and cutting Michigan’s lead to 19-14 on a 41-yard touchdown pass from Martinez to Rahmir Johnson with 1:24 left in the third quarter.

Following an interception by Deontai Williams that gave the Cornhuskers the ball at the Michigan 13-yard line, Nebraska took a 22-19 lead with 52 seconds remaining in the third quarter. First, Martinez hit Levi Falck for a 13-yard touchdown pass, and then Martinez ran in the 2-point conversion.

Michigan had an answer, taking a 26-22 lead with 11:21 remaining on a 29-yard touchdown run by Blake Corum.

Nebraska came back on its next possession, grabbing a 29-26 lead on a 5-yard touchdown run by Martinez with 7:08 remaining.
