MI football QB Brandon Peters carted off field with injury

Alex Hornibrook completed nine of 19 passes for 143 yards, a touchdown, and an interception for Wisconsin.

MI quarterback Brandon Peters left Saturday's game on a medical cart after being hit hard by a Wisconsin defender in the third quarter.

A big performance like this from him and a win over MI was exactly what the Badgers needed to show the College Football Playoff Selection Committee that they are a legitimate playoff contender, with their sites set on the Big Ten Championship game in two weeks.

Naturally, Michigan quarterback Brandon Peters fumbled on the next snap to deny the Wolverines a chance to tie the game. That score stood until the break.

That led to a 39-yard field goal, giving MI a 10-7 lead with 6 minutes, 36 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Mid-way through the third quarter, Hornibrook threw his 13th interception of the season, extending his turnover streak to eight-straight games and setting up MI with a 10-7 lead. The Wolverines are 0-3 this season against teams with a winning record.

Right after that, Peters was injured with 2:13 to go in the third quarter, bringing on backup signal-caller John O'Korn.

That set the final outcome.

MI (8-3, 5-3 Big Ten) closes out the regular season next Saturday at Ohio State.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) poured it on in the second half.
