No. 7 MI uses 5 FGs, punt return to beat Air Force

17 September 2017

Michigan Football moved to 3-0 with a 29-13 victory over Air Force on Saturday afternoon.

Nordin helped MI pull away with field goals in the third and fourth quarters. The running game was effective enough, averaging 4.5 yards per attempt, but whether through the air or on the ground, the Wolverines had a hard time ending drives with touchdowns.

People-Jones gathered in Charlie Scott's 53-yard punt, weaved around defenders and eluded Scott's tackle attempt at the 10 to give MI a 16-6 lead 1:09 into the second half.

The Falcons (1-1) failed to convert a pass until Arion Worthman threw a short slant to Ronald Cleveland and the receiver turned it into a 64-yard TD with 11:54 left in the quarter that pulled the service academy to within three points.
