Ranked No. 25 nationally and still undefeated, Michigan finally defeated an inferior opponent by an acceptably large margin. Along with that accomplishment, the Wolverines also suffered a loss – that of defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins.

Pipkins tore his ACL against Minnesota and is out for the year. He had played in all five games and totaled seven tackles.

“You hurt for Ondre, and I really do because I coach him and he’s in my meeting room every day,” head coach Brady Hoke stated in a press release. “He was really starting to turn the corner on the field and become a productive football player for us. The good news is he’s young, he’s a great kid and he has a lot of great football ahead of him. We will help him get through this.”
