Video: Michigan Stops Indiana On 4th-And-Goal To Seal Double-Overtime Win

Michigan stops Indiana on 4th down to seal double overtime victory.

No. 14 Michigan just escaped Indiana with a 48-41 victory in double overtime. The Wolverines sent the game into overtime on a touchdown pass from Jake Rudock to Jehu Chesson, and then locked up the win by batting down a fourth-down throw from Indiana's Nate Sudfeld in the second extra session.

The Wolverines took a 48-41 lead in that second overtime on a scoring toss from Rudock to Amara Darboh. Indiana drove down to the two-yard line, where it faced fourth-and-goal. Sudfeld's pass intended forwide receiver Mitchell Paige was broken up by Delano Hill. 

Amazingly, Sudfeld's final incompletion was the first pass Indiana had thrown since its second-to-last offensive possession during regulation. Maybe they should have just run it after all.
