ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Sophomore Jake Moody‘s 43-yard field goal proved to be the difference as the No. 7-ranked University of Michigan football team overcame early deficits and three first-half fumbles lost to defeat Army, 24-21, in double overtime Saturday (Sept. 7) at Michigan Stadium.
In the first meeting between the two teams since 1962, freshman Zach Charbonnet rushed for career highs of 33 carries, 100 yards and three touchdowns, and the Michigan defense came up big in the second overtime, ending the game with a quarterback sack and fumble recovery by junior Kwity Paye. U-M trailed 7-0 early and 14-7 at the half, and the Maize and Blue dodged Army’s 50-yard field goal attempt that fell short on the last play of regulation.
The Wolverines had the ball first in the second overtime period, and three incomplete passes led to a 43-yard field goal attempt from Moody, who snuck the ball inside the left upright for a 24-21 Michigan lead.
