Forty-five of Michigan's 94 total yards
on the ground came courtesy of wide
receiver David Terrell, who scoredt
Michigan's second touchdown on a
spectacular double-reverse that caught
the Wisconsin defense off guard.
With 1:19 remaining in the first quar-
ter, Brady pitched the ball to Anthony
Thomas, who began running around the
right side with fullback Aaron Shea as a
lead blocker. Thomas then handed the
ball to a streaking Marcus Knight. who
was sprinting in the opposite direction,
making the play appear to be a reverse.
Just as the Wisconsin defense began
pursuing Knight, he handed the ball to
Terrell, who had come around from his
split end position and was running right.
Using the downfield blocking of Shea
and Thomas, who had continued in the
direction in which they started, Terrell
danced untouched into the end zone,
giving Michigan the early 14-0 lead.
"Thomas and Shea gave me two key
blocks downfield, and that really sprung

could've walked in the end zone on that
It was another standout game for
Terrell, who caught seven passes for 88
yards in addition to his run on the
reverse. But Terrell, never one to con-
ceal his emotions, was flagged for an
excessive celebration penalty after a
tremendous 40-yard grab over
Wisconsin cornerback Jamar Fletcher
in the third quarter.
The penalty moved the ball from the
Wisconsin 23 - where Terrell made
the catch - to the Wisconsin 38, plac-
ing Michigan out of field goal range.
The Wolverines would not score on the
drive, and Carr was not pleased with his
upstart receiver.
"David is an emotional guy, but when
it hurts our team. I'm mad about it,"
Carr said. "He cost us a good chance at

The second of those hurried attempts
came on a third-and-three at the
Wisconsin eight-yard line. Brady stayed
in the pocket until it collapsed, then took
a few steps and lofted a pass to Shea,
who had shed his defender in the left
corner of the end zone, giving Michigan
the 7-0 lead and early momentum.
Brady sat out the second quarter
while Carr continued to alternate himi
and Drew Henson during first-half
quarterbacking duties. But Brady's effi-
cient first quarter - 9-of-13 for 79
yards -- earned him the job for the sec-
ond half.
Then, just minutes after his touch-
down pass to Johnson, Brady would get
a scare. With II minutes left in the
fourth quarter, Brady was leveled by
Wisconsin linebacker Chris Ghidorzi as
he released the ball.
Ghidorzi drove Brady into the artifi-

seconds. He then attempted to sit up,
