Redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters had the Wolverines in position to beat No. 5 Wisconsin, but then he fell injured.

In a year with a revolving door under center, Peters took over as the Wolverines’ last hope. They didn’t lose the season until they lost him.

Freshman wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones finally caught a deep ball, but that was one of few silver linings in Saturday’s loss.

The Daily breaks down the good, bad and the ugly from the 24-10 loss to the Badgers.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines sorely missed Lavert Hill in their matchup with the Badgers.

Here are five things we learned from Michigan’s 24-10 loss to the fifth-ranked Badgers.

 Fifth-year senior Ben Flanagan led the Wolverines, finishing 20th overall in Louisville.

Thanks in large part to their fifth-year seniors, the Wolverines returned to churning out strong, consistent performances, culminating in a 10th-place finish at the NCAA Championships in Louisville.

The Wolverines had plenty of opportunities to capitalize on good field position,  but instead fell short.

Michigan repeatedly pinned Wisconsin back deep, but it couldn’t put itself in the driver’s seat. The Badgers passed the Wolverines late in the third quarter — reaching the end zone on two consecutive possessions — and left them in the dust.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters left the game injured, and Michigan couldn’t recover.

The Wolverines agreed they “owed” Brandon Peters this game when he was carted off at the end of the third quarter. The only problem, though, is that they couldn’t deliver.

Devin Gill, Devin Bush and the rest of the Michigan football team were forced to accept their fate Saturday in Madison.

The Wolverines don’t have to worry about all the Playoff scenarios they aren’t in this year, because they never earned the right to be in that discussion anyway. They have nothing to lose against Ohio State, because over the last three months, Michigan never built up anything worth losing.

Michigan lost 24-10 to Wisconsin at Camp Randall Saturday.

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.

Michigan and Wisconsin are tied 7-7 at the half.

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.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines have the odds stacked against them in Madison.

Michigan will travel to Madison to take on No. 5 Wisconsin, eager to redeem its record against top competition. Here’s how the Wolverines match up with the Badgers on Saturday.
