Last night I got to wondering: When has Michigan won a game in which they did not score a Touchdown? Doing research this morning, I believe I have found the 5 most recent games in which Michigan won without hitting paydirt.
So I pose the question to the readers of this blog: Can you name the 5 most recent games Michigan won without scoring a TD?
Bonus question: Can you name the game Michigan won without scoring a TD in regulation, but did find the end zone in OT?
I will post the answers later. No looking it up unless you are really stumped. And no checking SuperGuides either.
Hint 1: I was born in 1988. To the best of my research, two of these games were in my lifetime.
Hint 2: Michigan did score TD's in two notable poor weather games that resulted in victories (1998 Northwestern, 1950 OSU). However, there is one other they did not...
EDIT #1: I am looking for games where Michigan did not score a TD in any way. This does not include games where Michigan may have scored a TD on Special Teams or Defense but not on offense.
EDIT #2: Answers - It looks like everyone that offered up answers were able to get the two most recent ones correct, 2012 vs. MSU (12-10) and 1995 vs. Purdue (5-0 nasty weather game). It does not appear anyone came up with the three oldest ones on the list, then again I doubted anyone would. I do believe these other three to be the most recent but if someone thinks I missed one I would be happy to look into it more.
1932 @ Minnesota (3-0)
1928 vs MSU (3-0)
1928 vs Illinois (3-0)
Most everyone got the bonus question as well, that was 2013 @ Northwestern. Maybe another time we could examine recent wins in which all Michigan scoring was via Special Teams.
