Gophers At Wolverines: That's Not A Misprint, The Scoreboard Says 58-0

If this isn't the ugliest game in recent Gophers history, with the possible exception of the 55-0 throttling the Gophers took to close the Metrodome against Iowa a couple of years back, I'd like someone to nominate a couple other candidates.

After a couple of Michigan field goals extended the Wolverines' lead to 51-0, it looked like the Gophers may have actually had a promising drive going, marching the ball all the way down to the Michigan 17-yard line. However, one play after picking up an impressive 28-yard gain, true freshman running back David Cobb put the ball on the turf for the Gophers. The bouncing ball was picked up by Michigan's Courtney Avery, who sped down the left sideline for an 83-yard fumble return and another Michigan touchdown. The extra point made the score 58-0 in favor of the Wolverines.

The Michigan defense has not shut anybody out since 2007, when they held the Notre Dame Fighting Irish scoreless. Now they're on pace to register the biggest shutout victory in the history of the Little Brown Jug rivalry.

With little time remaining in the fourth quarter of this one, the Michigan Wolverines lead the Minnesota Golden Gophers by a score of 58-0.
