Special teamers up, pass catchers down — again

Free Press sports writer Tony Garcia breaks down the Michigan football players who helped or hurt their stock after Saturday’s 19-17 win over lllinois in Ann Arbor.

Three up

Jake Moody: The no-doubter on this list, Jake Moody cemented himself in Michigan football’s “legendary status” according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. That, of course, came when he made a 35-yard field goal with nine seconds remaining to give the Wolverines the come-from-behind win and keep the perfect season alive. But he had to be perfect prior to then, too. His first kick, 46 yards heading south into a wind that gusted up to 30 miles per hour was certainly his toughest.

Michigan Wolverines kicker Jake Moody (13) and holder Brad Robbins watch Moody’s winning field goal fly true against Illinois to seal a 19-17 win at Michigan Stadium, Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022.

Harbaugh wanted to be at minimum on yard closer, but Moody said he could make it and knocked it through. He added two more field goals in the fourth quarter, one from 41 yards, the other from 33, in got-to-have-it situations to keep Michigan within striking distance. After Blake Corum fell in the end zone from two yards out on the game’s opening drive, nobody named Moody scored another point. His final kick was his 25th of the season tying Remy Hamilton (1994) for the most in program and Big Ten history. It was also the 65th of his career, passing Garrett Rivas (2003-04) who made 64, for the most all-time in the maize and blue.
