Michigan Vs. Purdue Score: Wolverines And Boilermakers Tied 7-7 After 1st Quarter

Defense hasn’t stood out between Michigan and Purdue after one quarter of play at Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines and Boilermakers have traded touchdowns, ending the first quarter tied 7-7.

Purdue struck first, scoring on its first drive of the game. The Boilermakers went 67 yards, capped off by a 48-yard pass from Caleb TerBush to Gary Bush for a touchdown.

Michigan answered that score on its first possession, however. The Wolverines’ offense went 70 yards, helped by two big plays. Fitzgerald Toussaint ran 15 yards on his first rush of the game. Seven plays later, Denard Robinson hit Jeremy Gallon for a 23-yard pass that moved Michigan into the red zone. Robinson ended the drive with a 2-yard push into the end zone to tie the game at 7-7.

Both quarterbacks have thrown with accuracy so far. TurBush has only missed one of his five passes. Robinson only threw one incompletion as well, but did turn the ball over with an interception to linebacker Joe Holland, who stepped in front of tight end Kevin Koger on a short out pattern.

Michigan has the ball as the second quarter begins.
