ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Devin Gardner played well at quarterback for a second consecutive week, the Wolverines had a 100-yard receiver emerge for the first time since September, and they came from behind to win yet another game this season in heart-palpatating fashion, this time a 38-31 win over Northwestern.

There were things for Michigan to be concerned with though, especially defensively. Michigan struggled to tackle and a defense that looked stout all season was porous against the Wildcats.

These things and more are hit on in this week’s 3 Up, 3 Down.
