Takeaways from Michigan Football's win over Florida

ARLINGTON TX- SEPTEMBER 02 Feleipe Franks #13 of the Florida Gators passes the ball against the Michigan Wolverines in the first quarter of a game at AT&T Stadium

The Wolverines would have had a 7-3 lead, but there was a flag on the touchdown play, and the referees declared it "ineligible", which concluded with a 25-yard FG. The Wolverines marched down the field to start the third quarter, scoring on a 3-yard Karan Higdon touchdown run. It wasn't any better for Zaire, who fumbled in the end zone late in the fourth quarter and the ball was recovered by MI for the game's final touchdown. On back-to-back MI drives, the quarterback threw interceptions. He did not throw a pass during his first drive, however, and MI was forced to punt after a three-and-out. Middle linebacker Devin Bush made his MI debut today and did not disappoint.

"Young don't mean nothing", said sophomore linebacker Devin Bush, who had a team-high seven tackles and two sacks. When he was asked about this year's defense as he a unit he said, "We ain't going to take nothing from nobody".

"Let's go embrace the opportunity and have a good time while we doing it", McElwain told reporters.

The secondary was also a pleasant surprise.

"The end result didn't come out the way we wanted it to, so like I said, we've just gotta watch this film, put it to rest and get ready for next week", said junior defensive lineman CeCe Jefferson.

Franks was then replaced by Malik Zaire.

Michigan's defense held Florida to 153 total yards, including 20 rushing.

Takeaways from Michigan Football's win over Florida

On the seventh play of Michigan's ensuing drive, Duke Dawson picked off Speight and returned it 48 yards for a game-tying touchdown. He seemed to be on a different page than his receievers at some points. Florida did not score after the second pick-six.

And McElwain summed it up saying, "You know what, we got to look at a lot of things". I wasn't going to get down about that. "It was better than anything I could have told the team".

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. If they do, the outside receiver on their side of the formation needs to line up behind the line.

The offensive line looked better than they did in their tough games a year ago. The Gators finished with 31 yards on the ground.

With the defense remaining stout, including an exclamation-point sack-fumble touchdown, MI was simply too much for the Gators without 10 players available. "The pass protection was outstanding". Florida State (0-1) will look to become the first team since Miami in 1983 to win a national championship after losing its opener. A majority of the big runs were sweeps from the shotgun formation, which isn't necessarily power running.

There weren't many answers in the game and there weren't any answers in the press conference, which means there will absolutely have to be answers in the following week or else the answers that begin to trickle out of the Florida athletic program won't be ones anyone there wants to hear. The maize and blue will be lights out with him as their kicker this season. Donovan Peoples-Jones would take over as punt returner to try to fill the shoes left by Jabrill Peppers.
