Against Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon, Michigan went deep into the playbook to score its first touchdown. Michigan proved that the flea flicker isn’t out of style just yet during the first quarter of action. Cade McNamara connected with Cornelius Johnson for a 34-yard touchdown pass.
Johnson’s separation from his defender was just enough for McNamara to take a shot down the field. McNamara also threw a perfect pass to the left corner of the end zone, which helped.
While the majority of the credit for this play goes to Johnson and McNamara, Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis deserves some props in Ann Arbor. This was a brilliant play call so early in the game.

And Gattis demonstrated in the first quarter that sometimes all you need is a trick play to get your offense going.
The Wolverines’ first-quarter touchdown drive should give them a lot more confidence going forward. The game will be broadcast on FOX this afternoon for
Michigan fans. In the first half, the Wolverines have a commanding 10-0 lead over the Badgers. Nokia News
