The Michigan Wolverines are struggling on the road against the Wisconsin Badgers.

"Struggling" might be an understatement. Michigan accounted for fewer than 100 yards of offense in the first half and went into the locker room with a 28-0 deficit.

Early in the second half Michigan punted the ball and downed it within Wisconsin's 1-yard line. It was an incredible play from the Wolverines special teams, but a flag on the play made the team re-kick.

After a bad punt, Wisconsin took over at their own 15-yard line instead of having the ball within its own 1-yard line.

Following the play, cameras caught Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh feeling sorry for himself on the sideline. Harbaugh was aghast at the penalty call by the officials and didn't hide it.

Harbaugh gave the Wolverines a stern talking to during halftime, but it doesn't appear to have paid off.

Michigan has been dominated by the Wisconsin offensive line for nearly three quarters of play. Star running back Jonathan Taylor has racked up nearly 200 yards on the ground and had over 140 in the first quarter alone.

Wisconsin holds a 35-0 lead late in the third quarter in what has turned into an absolute beat-down in Madison.
