Michigan seemed to play everyone but Tom Brady and Jim Harbaugh under center on Saturday.
The Wolverine He used eight different midfield players during the 59-0 run on UConn, with seven of them completing at least one pass.
Novice J.J. McCarthy completed 15 of 18 passes for 214 yards. Then starting in the second quarter, Michigan moved through the senior Cady McNamarasenior Alan Bowman (1-1, 20 yards, one-time touchdown), freshman Jayden Denegal (no attempts), senior Andy Maddox (1-1, four yards), freshman Brandon Mann (1-1, seven yards) ), freshman Alex Orji (1-1, five yards; 30 fast yards, one fast descent) and sophomore Davis Warren (1-2, five yards).
The Wolverines also have a ninth quarterback player on their roster: freshman Declan Bale. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said afterwards that McNamara will likely be out for several weeks with a hard-hit lower body injury.
The Wolverines topped the 50-point mark for the third week in a row, the first time in school history they’ve started the season with such a streak.
Novice Blake Corum sure did the real damage, scoring five quick touchdowns in 12 vehicles for 71 yards. Michigan rushed for 192 yards and six touchdowns as a team.
After a relatively light opening schedule for Colorado, Hawaii and Connecticut, the Wolverines opened their Big Ten game on September 24 when they host Maryland at noon EST.
