It seemed destined to be another boring, easy, road win for Michigan, and save a few special-teams plays that kept it just interesting enough, that’s exactly what it was. The Daily breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly from the Wolverines’ 38-7 win:

COLLEGE PARK — Giles Jackson had scored a touchdown before, back in September. But that one didn’t feel right.

Jackson ran the wrong route then, and though he caught the pass anyway — in the fourth quarter of a 52-0 blowout of Rutgers — the score was somewhat meaningless.

On Saturday, Jackson scored his second touchdown of the season in a 38-7 win over Maryland. This time, he did everything right.

Michigan's game against Penn State was the first time all year Patterson said that he was at 100 percent.

As Tru Wilson took the handoff and cut through the teeth of Notre Dame’s defense, Shea Patterson sprinted downfield ahead of his running back. When Wilson approached the end zone, Patterson threw a block on the last remaining defender. Wilson coasted in for a touchdown.

Early in the season, Patterson seemed reluctant to put his body on the line. He was hesitant to keep the ball even on read-options that appeared to be open for a keep. He certainly didn’t block for touchdowns like he did on Saturday or risk an eye-gouging on a quarterback sneak, like last week at Penn State.

Safeties and special teams coach Chris Partridge was a senior on the Paramus Catholic team that won a state championship in 1997.

The two friends kept in touch throughout the years, crossing paths as they rose in the coaching profession. But they’d never been at the same place before, not until this year. Now, Partridge and Campanile are reunited at Michigan — Partridge coaching safeties and special teams and Campanile coaching linebackers.

Michigan's 303 rushing yards helped Michigan eclipse its second win over a top-10 team in the Harbaugh era.

Hassan Haskins broke free, found his gap and exploited it. He’d done this before, but this time, there was an encore. Haskins jumped into the air and over his defender, picking up a few extra yards in the process.

Last week, Michigan got its second loss at Penn State, effectively ending any hopes of a Big Ten championship and the College Football Playoff. In the days leading up to the Wolverines’ matchup with Notre Dame, the biggest question was clear: What is there still to play for?
Michigan players insisted there was still plenty, most of all the chance to beat their rivals, but it was still a little hard to believe. At least, until Hassan Haskins ran 25 yards — several with a tackler on his back — on the Wolverines’ second drive of the game, one that eventually ended in a Zach Charbonnet touchdown.

Former quarterback Denard Robinson led Michigan to a comeback win against Notre Dame in 2011.

Before the Wolverines took the field for the first-ever night game at Michigan Stadium in 2011, they heard from Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson.

The two Michigan legends talked about the importance of the rivalry with Notre Dame. They told the team about how to win big games like this. They said these were the types of matchups where legacies are made.

Under these kinds of circumstances, there is inevitably a debate about what the rest of the season means, and what there is to play for if there are no accolades on the horizon. For Michigan, those answers seem to lie in the remaining games on the schedule — and a steadfast belief in themselves.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh made several questionable decisions on fourth downs during Michigan’s 28-21 loss at Penn State on Saturday night.

This team is known for going on the road and playing scared, and on that front, coach Jim Harbaugh is guilty until proven innocent. In previous games, that’s manifested itself in the team completely crumbling after allowing an early score — like at Wisconsin, when it was 35-0 by halftime after the Badgers scored on their first possession. But that’s not what happened Saturday, at least not quite. This time, the players did about as much as you could’ve asked for after a slow start. Instead, it was Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Josh Gattis who panicked.

A Saturday report from the Detroit Free Press confirmed that the pool closure was due to Cryptosporidium, a parasite that causes diarrhea, vomiting and cramps. A spokesperson for the Washtenaw County Health Department told the Free Press that there were 10 confirmed cases of the parasite tied to University pools. The natatorium was shut down for treatment on Sept. 30 and Oct. 10, according to the report.
