Michigan vs. Northwestern score: Wolverines and Wildcats tied 14-14 at halftime

The Michigan Wolverines and No. 24 Northwestern Wildcats are tied 14-14 at halftime on Saturday at Michigan Stadium. The Wildcats tied the score with a touchdown in the final minute of the half.

Each team exchanged gaffes early in the second quarter. Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint fumbled deep in Northwestern territory on the tail end of a 50-yard run. Several plays later, Wildcats' quarterback Kain Colter fumbled on a sack by Jibreel Black and the Wolverines recovered at the Northwestern 37-yard line.

Michigan took advantage of the good field position, going 37 yards in 10 plays to take a 14-7 lead. Running back Thomas Rawls' 1-yard touchdown finished off the drive, but the key play was quarterback Devin Gardner's 17-yard scramble on third-and-11.

Northwestern tied the score with 25 seconds left in the first half on a 19-yard pass from backup quarterback Trevor Siemian to Cameron Dickerson. Siemian was 4-of-5 on the drive for 51 yards.

The Wolverines have 108 yards rushing, with Toussaint's 65 yards and Gardner's 48 yards leading the way. Wildcats' running back Venric Mark has 60 of Northwestern's 118 rushing yards.
