Michigan Beats Florida 33-17 Despite Wilton Speight's Struggles at QB

The temptation was to look down when the ball was tipped into the air.

FLORIDA: The Gators have their final tuneup before SEC play, hosting Northern Colorado for their home opener next Saturday. But it happened so quickly, you couldn't.

Florida made it back-to-back pick-6s when true freshman cornerback CJ Henderson intercepted Speight and returned it 41 yards for the score.

Florida's Duke Dawson went 48 yards after catching a deflected ball that intended receiver Kekoa Crawford could barely get his fingers on.

After a dismal second quarter when Florida scored twice on interception returns, the Wolverines snapped back in the second half to win, 33-17, before 75,802 at AT&T Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Nordin came in and delivered a 30-yard field goal to give the Wolverines a 23-17 lead.

While the defense did most of the scoring for Florida, it wasn't particularly effective aside from the two interceptions. MI proved to be the more dominant team throughout, outgaining its opponent 433-192 on offense and finding it relatively easy to convert third and fourth downs over the course of the game.

These are admittedly low bars, and even Haberman and Thrush acknowledge that it's basically routine office management. "Mr. Yes, there was the "very fine people on both sides" moment, with Kelly memorably hanging his head in frustration.

"Young don't mean nothing", said sophomore linebacker Devin Bush, who had a team-high seven tackles and two sacks. Florida did not score after the second pick-six. Jachai Polite, Taven Bryan and Cece Jefferson all grabbed sacks, while Jordan Sherit grabbed two.

The 17th-ranked Gators, shorthanded and starting a redshirt freshman at quarterback, were held to 192 yards of offense. After connecting with wideout Josh Hammond for a 34-yard gain on his first pass of the game, Franks couldn't do much else.

Franks was 5-for-9 for 75 yards with five carries for seven yards, and the offense has yet to produce a TD through almost three quarters of play. Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire came on after that, and was 9 of 17 for 106 yards. Here are three storylines to watch in Michigan's Week 1 game against Florida. The Gators had 46 total yards to Michigan's 133.

Tyrie Cleveland led the Gators with four catches for 56 yards.

MI looks to reload rather than rebuild after having a school-record 11 players selected in the 2017 NFL Draft and will count on a number of highly-touted underclassmen, including defensive end Rashan Gary, who was named to the AP Preseason All-America team, to play prominent roles.
