Michigan slips past Indiana

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Nestled underneath the west side of Indiana University's Memorial Stadium is a spacious room covered in photos commemorating the handful of bowl games the football program has been a part of.

In terms of historical relevance, it cannot compete with anything displayed inside of Notre Dame Stadium, located about four hours to the north. But to this year's Michigan team, there wasn't much difference between playing at South Bend last month and playing here Saturday.

Like that win over the Irish, UM pieced together a touchdown drive on its final possession to win in spite of a crummy defensive effort. And once again, Denard Robinson had his handprints all over it, including scoring the game winner, in the No. 19 Wolverines' 42-35 win to open the Big Ten season.
