In brutal fashion, No. 24 Michigan learned a difficult lesson it has learned many times before: winning on the road is hard. It’s even more difficult when your starting quarterback returns to the locker room in a wheelchair.
Bad things can happen on the road. Just ask the Wolverines.
They have yet to beat a ranked opponent away from Michigan Stadium since 2006. They haven’t beaten Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium since 2001, either.
At first, Saturday’s first half against the fifth-ranked Badgers didn’t bode well for Michigan’s chances at snapping either streak. But the Wolverines put together an impressive response late in the second quarter, tying the game at seven.
