Karan Higdon’s TD extends Michigan’s lead against Indiana

As Indiana was creeping closer to giving Michigan a scare on Saturday,  Karan Higdon gave the Wolverines a crucial score that meant more than they could have realized at the time.

The Wolverines running back dashed for a 59-yard score with 10:25 left in the fourth quarter, giving Michigan a 20-10 lead before Indiana came back to force overtime. Michigan ultimately won on a goal-line stand, 27-20.

Higdon has been Michigan’s most effective offensive weapon on Saturday. That hasn’t been a hard thing to do on a team that has only thrown for 56 yards on 19 attempts, but he’s still been impressive. Higdon has 162 yards on 18 carries, which almost eclipses Indiana’s total yards output on the day (195 as of this publish time).

Michigan looks to be in a comfortable position now after sweating through much of Saturday’s game. The Wolverines saw their 13-0 halftime lead get sliced to three points after an Indiana field goal and touchdown, and that’s where the lead sits again after Indiana’s latest score. Will Michigan emerge from Bloomington unscathed?
