Michigan's football program continues to shoot itself in the foot on offense, as the Wolverines have had another disastrous start to a game.

Jim Harbaugh's team has struggled with ball security all season - fumbling the ball eight times heading into today's game - and those struggles aren't going away.

Michigan, trailing Wisconsin 7-0, fumbled near the goal line on its opening drive.

The Wolverines turned the ball over when Ben Mason lost the ball inside the red zone. Fans aren't happy with the play call.

Michigan had gotten inside the 10-yard line on a great play by Shea Patterson.

Then, Mason fumbled on his first carry of the season. It's the Wolverines' sixth lost fumble of the year.

Wisconsin is leading Michigan, 7-0, late in the first quarter.
