Gardner Lifts Michigan Over Northwestern In 3OT
By ANDREW SELIGMAN/AP Sports Writer
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) – Devin Gardner scored on a 5-yard run to lift Michigan to a 27-19 triple-overtime victory over Northwestern on Saturday after the Wolverines’ Brendan Gibbons tied it with a 44-yard field goal at the end of regulation.
Gardner scored on an option and ran it in on the two-point conversion to make it an eight-point game.
Northwestern had one more chance, but Trevor Siemian got sacked for a 14-yard loss by Jibreel Black on second down. Then, his desperation pass on fourth down got intercepted by Thomas Gordan, giving the Wolverines (7-3, 3-3 Big Ten) their second win in five games and sending the Wildcats (4-6, 0-6) to their sixth straight loss.
