Michigan avoided arguably the worst loss of the Jim Harbaugh era, stormed back from a deficit in the first half and survived in triple overtime with a 48:42 win at Rutgers

The Scarlet Knights went into the game as strong underdogs but took a 17-0 lead before a quarterback move helped bring the Wolverines back into play Cade McNamara took over for Joe Milton and the offensive found some life, took the lead before halftime and kept step in the second half in a back and forth game McNamara ended up with 260 yards and four touchdowns with zero interceptions at the 27-of-36 pass, tying with Cornelius Jackson for two of those points and helped guide the offense through those tense overtime

But McNamara’s performance off the bench was almost not enough because Rutgers quarterback Noah Vedral was too dialed in to dodge the disgruntled Scarlet Knights opportunity.Vedral literally got the defenders into the end zone on the game-winning two-point conversion, in less than 30 seconds Remaining in regular time, one game after evading defenders in fourth place for touchdown
