WATCH: Michigan takes down WMU in a nail-biting 23-14 victory on NCAA 14 simulation

It was, surprisingly, a close game.

Man oh man, it was a close call in today’s NCAA 14 simulation between the Michigan Wolverines and the Western Michigan Broncos.

But at the end of the simulation, the Wolverines came out on top 23-14.

Shea Patterson was 21-of-30 for 265 yards and one interception. He was, however, only sacked once. The yardage is good, but it’d be disappointing if Patterson were to not throw a touchdown for the second straight game.

Meanwhile, Karan Higdon carried the ball well — 25 attempts for 80 yards and a touchdown. Chris Evans also found the end zone for U-M’s other touchdown.

Another shocker — Oliver Martin led the Wolverines in receiving with 79 yards. Grant Perry had 62 yards, while Nico Collins had 47. Donovan Peoples-Jones did not contribute much, just two catches for 26 yards. Only one Michigan tight end caught a pass — Zach Gentry for two yards.

Devin Gil had another hell of a simulation — eight tackles, two for loss and one sack. Cornerback Casey Hughes also pitched in two TFLs, while Rashan Gary, Aubrey Solomon, Tyree Kinnel and Khaleke Hudson all had one. Kinnel and Ambry Thomas also had interceptions, with Thomas’ being a game-sealing one.

Finally, Nordin was 3-for-3 on field goals, with a long of 53 yards, and 2-for-2 on extra points.

For all the fun, watch the simulation below.
