ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan celebrated its 500th game at the Big House with the first big win of the Roch Rodriguez-era.
The Wolverines rallied from a 19-point halftime deficit, and when Wisconsin's Allan Evridge misfired on a 2-point conversion pass with 13 seconds left, Michigan had sealed a 27-25 victory over the ninth-ranked Badgers on Saturday.
Wisconsin seemed to tie the game and set up overtime with David Gilreath's 22-yard touchdown catch and Travis Beckum's reception for 2, but the conversion was negated by a penalty and the retry s a pass through the end zone.
Michigan (2-2, 1-0 Big Ten) had five turnovers in the first half, leading to a 19-0 deficit, and didn't score until late in the third quarter.
