Found September 23, 2013 on Double Coverage Football:
It had all the makings of a monumental upset. The largest crowd in Rentschler Field history, a defense that was playing with more speed and passion than UConn fans had seen in two years, and Devin Gardner donating the ball to the Huskies like it was an expired can of cranberry sauce at a Thanksgiving food drive combined to give heavy underdog UConn a 21-7 lead with 20 minutes of football left.

Local Big Ten Review: To Win, Michigan Must Knock Off Turnovers for Touchdowns

For the Michigan Wolverines, everything looked and felt fine as the team was rolling in a 59-9 win over hapless Central Michigan in the season opener. That day, though, a frustrated trend quietly started. Turnovers, and lots of them, would follow. Despite the lopsided score, the Wolverines gave the ball away three times. It didn’t cost them that Saturday, but it would quickly begin...
