So far, so good

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Peters had his most extensive game action today during Michigan’s 35-14 win over Rutgers. In relief of John O’Korn, Peters changed the momentum and helped the offense produce. When Peters entered the game, it was all tied up at 7-7. On the day, Peters was 10-14 for 124 yards with one touchdown pass.

When it comes to whether Peters was anxious, nervous, or calm and collected, Peters appeared to be the latter. “I wasn’t that nervous honestly, it’s just a great opportunity to get out there. I was more excited and confident than nervous.”

When asked about how he felt after his touchdown pass, Peters said “Throwing a touchdown pass is always great. It felt good, to Chris Evans. It was a great play call and it worked out good.”

Peters ran the offense efficiently, and on the touchdown toss, he diagnosed the coverage and threw to the open man. “I saw man coverage one on one with Chris and just read it out, give him a chance on the play, he made a great catch, great play on the ball. All my teammates were excited, I was excited, it was a great feeling.” Peters said.

Peters will look to keep things rolling positively against Minnesota next week.
