#sportsscores | Michigan vs. Rutgers score: Live game updates, college football scores, NCAA highlights, full coverage


Michigan enters the fourth quarter on Saturday night trailing Rutgers 27-21 in a game that will likely serve as a pivot point in the season for the Wolverines. Starting quarterback Joe Milton was replaced by Cade McNamara in the second quarter, and the sophomore brought a spark to the offense and led a touchdown drive before halftime as Michigan found itself down by 17 early in the game. Things were looking up for the Wolverines with a kickoff return touchdown to start the second half, but the defense has not been able to get the stops needed to take control of the game in the third quarter. 

Rutgers quarterback Noah Vedral continues to have success pushing the ball down the field against the Wolverines defense, extending an issue that has lingered ever since the Michigan State loss. Vedral has 278 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-29 passing, hitting on enough explosive plays to negate the wins on key downs when Michigan does seem to having things going in the right direction. 

It’s a key point in the game and a key point in the season, as the Wolverines look to retake the lead and escape with a win against a team they’ve won five straight against in Big Ten play.
