Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner, who started in relief of injured starter Denard Robinson, has led Michigan on another long scoring drive.
The Wolverines lead 14-7 over Minnesota just before halftime.
Gardner orchestrated a 90-yard, 13-play drive — after a block-in-the-back penalty negated a Jeremy Gallon punt return — that culminated with a two-yard run by Thomas Rawls.
Michigan got on the board with about eight minutes left in the half when Gardner led Michigan on a 91-yard, 12-play drive. On third and 17, Gardner connected with Drew Dileo, wide open in the end zone, on a 45-yard touchdown pass.
Michigan started slowly offensively and has been undermined by challenging field position. Gardner threw an interception on an ill-advised pass in the first quarter, but has looked more relaxed and confident in the second quarter.
