Michigan seeks a signature win for the 2017 season as it takes on Wisconsin on Saturday at noon. Follow the action with live updates throughout the game by Eric Coughlin of The Detroit News.

Peters knocked out, UW beats UM

Michigan couldn't survive a special teams mistake and another quarterback knocked out of a game, losing, 24-10, to Wisconsin.

With the score tied at zero, a UM punt bounced around midfield. The UM players relaxed, there was a questionable block in the back no-call, and UM was down 7-0.

UM quarterback Brandon Peters was moving the ball well but was taking a lot of hits. He was driven into the ground in the third quarter and had to be carted off the field. He was spotted getting into an ambulance later.

UW's star freshman running back Jonathan Taylor woke up in the second half, averaging 6.9 yards per carry for 132 yards including a big 52-yarder in the fourth quarter.

UW quarterback Alex Hornibrook was just good enough. After a third-quarter interception by Devin Bush, Hornibrook settled in and led Wisconsin on two scoring drives. He finished 9-for-19 passing for 143 yards and a touchdown.
