The Sugar Bowl could not have started any worse for the Michigan Wolverines. In fact, before the game even started, the team's All-American center David Molk was injured during warmups and did not play the first series in which Michigan went three-and-out.
Michigan's lone break of the first quarter was Virginia Tech running back David Wilson running 22 yards the wrong way on first down from Michigan's four-yard line. The Hokies ultimately kicked a field goal to take a 3-0 lead.
Michigan picked up two first downs on the ensuing possession, but Denard Robinson was intercepted the very next pass.
Virginia Tech will start the second quarter at Michigan's 33-yard line, thanks to two third-and-long conversions.
Michigan has 29 yards of total offense to the Hokies' 110, but luckily, it's only 3-0.
