No. 8 MI led 14-0 and had a chance to throw an early haymaker against Cincinnati in the first quarter of Saturday's game. Two of Moore's passes were intercepted and returned for scores, by Tyree Kinnel in the first quarter and Lavert Hill late in the fourth. Hayden Moore had 151 passing yards with three touchdowns.
Alabama (2-0) polished off the 44-point underdog Bulldogs (1-1) with a workmanlike performance on the heels of a hard-hitting opening victory over Florida State in Atlanta. Will Hart had two 21-yard punts in the second half that the Bearcats didn't take advantage of.
It marked Isaac's third career 100-yard game at U-M (114 yards vs. UNLV in 2015 was the other), while his long rush of 53 yards marked the Wolverines' longest play of the season so far and tied for the second-longest run of his career.
It may not be the most high-profile game of a loaded Week 2 slate, but Cincinnati's visit to MI is an intriguing noon matchup with several storylines to keep an eye on for both sides.
While quarterback Wilton Speight wasn't bad for MI, he has yet - in two games - to inspire much confidence in the Wolverines' offense, despite the weapons he has in receivers Kekoa Crawford, Tarik Black, Donovan Peoples-Jones (among others) and his solid offensive line.
Both teams will be looking to clean things up this weekend, though it won't be easy for Cincy- they're now listed as 34.5-point underdogs. Next weekend, the two in-state rivals had been scheduled to meet in Tallahassee in a primetime clash that would double as a key ACC clash.
In the first quarter, Moore overthrew the ball, which was intercepted by MI safety Tyree Kinnel.
With just over four minutes remaining before halftime, Adams was in the right place again as he picked up a fumble from 46 yards out to make the score 31-7.
Not in points, but in rushing yards. Crawford had 83 yards on four catches and Perry had 66 yards on four catches.
Michigan's next two possessions accumulated 7 yards on nine plays. The second quarter didn't go well. He completed 25 of 38 passes for the Cowboys (2-0) before heading to the sideline in the third quarter.
