Michigan drove to the Michigan State 3-yard line after a turnover, but has settled for a field goal.
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson had back-to-back incompletions — he threw behind a wide-open Jeremy Gallon in the end zone on third down. Brendan Gibbons made his second field goal of the game, this time from 21 yards, to give the Wolverines a 9-7 lead in the annual grudge match.
The drive was set up after safety Jordan Kovacs intercepted MSU quarterback Andrew Maxwell.
The Wolverines have 243 yards, including 102 rushing. Michigan State has 215 yards, including 64 rushing.
