Michigan vs. Minnesota score: Wolverines lead 14-7 at halftime

A late first half touchdown gave the Michigan Wolverines a 14-7 lead over the Minnesota Golden Gophers heading into halftime of Saturday's contest.

Michigan's offense bounced back from a slow start, as quarterback Devin Gardner began to find a rhythm. Gardner orchestrated a 12-play, 91-yard touchdown drive midway through the second quarter, which was capped off by a 45-yard bomb to Drew Dileo. The score tied the game at 7-7 and ended a long touchdown drought for the Wolverines:

After a failed Minnesota drive, Gardner and the Michigan offense went on the march again, going 90 yards on 13 plays for another touchdown. Running back Thomas Rawls' two-yard touchdown run with 45 seconds left in the half finished off the long drive.

Gardner finished the half 8-of-12 passing for 119 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also made some things happen on the ground, with 25 yards on seven carries. Rawls leads Michigan in rushing with eight carries for 27 yards, while Dileo leads the Wolverines in receiving with three catches for 58 yards.

Minnesota missed a long field goal with time expiring in the half.
