Michigan Stock Report: Hassan Haskins takes advantage of increased role over Indiana
ANN ARBOR – Michigan stayed alive in the Big Ten East with a 29-7 win over Indiana on Saturday.
His offense was 411 yards and his defense held Indiana (2-7, 0-6 Big Ten) to 195 yards, including just 53 in the second half.
The Wolverines improve to 8-1 and 5-1 in the conference.
Here is our camp report from Saturday’s game.
Blake Corum left the game with an injury on Michigan’s second drive and never returned. With Donovan Edwards also missing from the third row, Haskins took over most of the backfield duties for the rest of the game. The senior made the most of the extra workload, reaching a career height of 168 yards and a touchdown at 27 carries. He also had an important 20-yard reception that got Michigan for the first time and to gate in the second quarter. His ability to reach meters after contact continues to impress and he also beat another defender on Saturday.
The Redshirt runner-up outside the linebacker could be Michigan’s biggest surprise this season. He continues to wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks, registering two quarterback rushes and a strip sack on Saturday. He’s got a team high of eight sacks this season.
Moody is Mr. Reliable again this season. He made all three of his field goal attempts – two from 34 yards and one from 32 yards – and is now 21 of 23 this season.
Upshaw, a senior, had the biggest influence of the season. He had a sack in the second quarter and then blew up a run-play in the backcourt on a third-and-2 in the fourth quarter.
Barrett was the team’s first “Viper” last season but saw his role in Mike Macdonald’s new plan melt away. But he got most of the season he has against Indiana and had a solid game with four tackles at Outside Linebacker.
Michigan’s secondary school
Yes, Indiana played its third string quarterback, but the Wolverines only kept Donaven McCulley at 88 yards and a completion percentage of 42%. Only two of its 10 completions were to recipients.
There have been a few sticky moments for the former five-star quarterback in his limited playing time. He hit a third and an 18 for one play in the second quarter, rolled out to the right and heaved a pass over the middle to virtually no one while also taking a big hit. He took a few more big hits and was sacked twice. In total, he completed 5 out of 10 passes for 55 yards and one interception.
