Michigan wide receiver Roy Roundtree has bounced back from a slow start this season.
Roundtree has 203 yards receiving in his last two games to surpass his production from the first eight games of the year.
He leaped to tip and catch a 53-yard pass Saturday that set a field goal with 2 seconds left to extend a game the Wolverines won 38-31 in overtime over Northwestern.
Roundtree finished with 139 yards receiving - the second highest total of his career - against the Wildcats.
The 23rd-ranked Wolverines hope the fifth-year senior can help them finish the regular season with wins Saturday at home against Iowa and the next week at Ohio State.

With 27 fateful seconds left on the clock and Michigan Football trailing Northwestern 31-28, Devin Gardner took a snap from the Michigan 38 yard line. He dropped back and heaved a long pass to Roy Roundtree, who made a circus catch at the Northwestern 9 yard line to set up a game-tying field goal. Michigan of course went on to win the game in overtime by a final score of 38-31
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Roy Roundtree made Desmond Howard proud.

Michigan was down by three points to Northwestern with 18 seconds remaining in the game. Needing to get into field goal range, Devin Gardner found Roy Roundtree for the big gain, and setting U-M up for the game tying field goal.
On a day when a trio of tackles were honored as legends, it was a receiver that made the biggest play.

Michigan Football Recruiting Update
Michigan recently picked up commitment #23 when Da’Mario Jones (Westland, Michigan) pledged. He is a 3-star receiver with good size (6-2, 185) and speed (4.4). He is the third receiver to join the 2013 class (Jaron Dukes, Csont’e York). Michigan continues to recruit 4-star WR Laquon Treadwell.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Denard Robinson has become the elephant in Brady Hoke's room.
There have been times in Hoke's two seasons at Michigan where he couldn't stop talking about his multi-talented quarterback, but that has changed ever since Robinson left the Nebraska game with a nerve problem in his throwing elbow.
The Wolverines lost that game as backup Russell Bellomy...
Michigan Football improved to 7-3 (5-1) with a dramatic 38-31 victory in OT on Saturday afternoon against Northwestern.
Brady Hoke asked the first question at his post game presser. “How many of you (reporters) had your stories written before the finish?” Most of the room raised their hands. For Hoke, these last second wins are now officially old hat. Walking back to...

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Devin Gardner ran for a 1-yard touchdown in overtime and Michigan's defense responded with a stop, giving the Wolverines a wild 38-31 win over Northwestern on Saturday.
Giving up 31 points in one game isn’t something that pleases Brady Hoke and the Michigan coaching staff. Northwestern was able to attack the Wolverines on the perimeter. But a great defensive call late solidified the 38-31 overtime win.
So far, Trey Burke and Michigan are putting on stunning shooting displays, especially from beyond the arc.
That means Cleveland State's defensive success could be coming to an abrupt end.
Burke looks to capitalize on another seemingly overmatched opponent as the No. 5 Wolverines meet the Vikings for the first time in 15 years Tuesday night in the NIT Season Tip-Off.
