Instant Recap, Reaction, Highlights & More From Michigan's 36-14 Win Over Cincinnati

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Michigan Wolverines

It wasn't quite that easy.

The Wolverines are fresh off a 33-17 win over Florida in the season opener when quarterback Wilton Speight threw for two interceptions in the first-half.

Despite trimming their deficit to three points early in the second half, the University of Cincinnati football team lost their first game of the season to the Michigan Wolverines 36-14.

The eighth-ranked Wolverines are now 2-0 and relied on a heavy presence from its defense for the second straight week. In the fourth quarter, another interception was made by Lavert Hill, who returned the ball 24 yards. Quinn Nordin added two field goals. Faced with a more-than-capable Florida front-seven last week, the Wolverines managed 215 rushing yards (compared to just 11 for UF, but that's neither here nor there). Ty Isaac led the Wolverines running game with 133 yards on 20 carries.

After Michigan took a 17-7 lead into halftime, Cincinnati shaved its deficit to 17-14 with 11:15 remaining in the third on a 10-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Hayden Moore to junior wideout Kahlil Lewis.

Michigan's next two possessions accumulated 7 yards on nine plays. Cincy cuts UM lead to 17-14. MI is 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in September. He made a handsome throw on a touchdown pass to Kekoa Crawford.

With just less than seven minutes, MI added a safety when the punt snap sailed into the end zone, and was batted out for a 33-yard loss.

Take away the two touchdowns scored by the MI defense, one late in the fourth quarter, and this game would have been much closer.

MI led 17-7 after a first half that began with a well-executed 80-yard touchdown drive and ended with the Wolverines' final five drives that went like this: fumble, field goal, fumble, three-and-out, punt. The second quarter didn't go well.

The Cincinnati Bearcats (1-0) are coming from a 26-14 win over the Austin Peay Governors last week. The Wolverines fumbled the punt, giving UC the ball at the MI 38-yard line. Kekoa Crawford (four catches, 83 yards, touchdown) and Grant Perry (four catches, 66 yards, touchdown) are the go-to receivers right now while some of those highly touted targets such as Peoples-Jones and Tarik Black develop consistency.

MI fumbled three times Saturday, losing two.
