Hoosiers Fall to Michigan in a Tight One
Sept. 26, 2009
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Tate Forcier’s 26-yard pass to Martavious Odoms with 2:29 left lifted No. 23 Michigan to a 36-33 win over Indiana on Saturday.
Donovan Warren’s interception on Indiana’s next snap sealed the hard-fought victory for the Wolverines (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten), who were badly outgained by the Hoosiers (3-1, 0-1).
Earlier, Forcier leaped for a TD and a 2-point conversion to put Michigan ahead 29-26, but Darius Willis put Indiana back ahead with an 85-yard run on the next play.
Willis ran for 154 yards in the game, the most for a Hoosier back since 2005. The freshman scored two touchdowns, and the Hoosiers also got a rushing score from sophomore receiver Tandon Doss. Doss also hauled in five catches for 104 yards.
Indiana’s 197 rushing yards on the day were the second-most ever for the Hoosiers against Michigan.
