Kareem Walker, Oliver Martin not dressed for Michigan-Cincinnati game

MI redshirt senior WR Wilton Speight completed 17 of 29 attempts for 221 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 36-14 win over Cincinnati on Saturday. Freshman Quinn Nordin was named the Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player of the Week after kicking four field goals, including a 55-yarder, against Florida.

Junior receiver Grant Perry hauled in a short pass from Speight and turned it up field for a 33-yard score for the other touchdown.

Following a 24-yard field goal by freshman kicker Quinn Nordin that gave MI a 27-14 lead with 9:02 left, a bad snap on a Cincinnati punt was batted out of the end zone for a safety to put MI ahead 29-14 with 6:53 remaining.

The Michigan offense never could get anything going.

MI didn't stretch its lead to more than 14 points until the fourth quarter, and there were a few anxious moments in between. He made a attractive throw on a touchdown pass to Kekoa Crawford.

Take away the two touchdowns scored by the MI defense, one late in the fourth quarter, and this game would have been much closer. The 17-7 halftime score was closer than anyone expected. He had TD passes to Kekoa Crawford early in the game and to Grant Perry in the third that gave MI a 10-point cushion. The Wolverines fumbled the punt, giving UC the ball at the MI 38-yard line.

The Cincinnati Bearcats (1-0) are coming from a 26-14 win over the Austin Peay Governors last week.

Mike Boone and Hayden Moore saved the game for the Bearcats.

The Wildcats (2-0) led 14-0 midway through the first quarter, before Adams took an interception 30 yards up the far sideline and scored to make it 21-0. Karan Higdon added 78 yards and a touchdown in seven attempts.

MI fumbled three times Saturday, losing two.

After gaining 155 yards in the first quarter, the Wolverines had 17 plays for 44 yards in the second. The next MI possession, Grant Perry appeared to make a miraculous third-down catch, but after a review, officials ruled it an incompletion although it looked like it bounced off his hand into his arms.
