Michigan's offense drops the ball in big game against the Bulldogs 34-11
Michigan could end their year on a high note by defeating the Bulldogs in a very tough environment, to earn themselves a dance with Alabama in the National Championship. All they had to do was contain Georgia's potent offense, which was no easy test.
In the first 10 minutes of the game, Michigan was down two touchdowns, which was the first time in the season that they were down by two touchdowns early on. Cade McNamara tried to get his team down the field and put points on the scoreboard, but dropped passes, inaccurate balls, and being hurried was a nightmare that he could not shake. The second half did not get any better for Michigan. McNamara threw a couple of interceptions, which helped the Bulldogs extend their lead and put the game out of reach. It got so bad that Georgia put in their reserved players midway in the fourth.
After the game Michigan's head coach Jim Harbaugh had this to say about his team's effort. "Our ballclub was in position to do it, and we weren't able to get it done," Harbaugh said. "But it's always building and attacking at the same time."
McNamara finished the game 11 out 19 for 106 yards and 2 interceptions.
