Michigan football turns to Cade McNamara at QB and watches him score immediately
Michigan football has made a switch at quarterback.
The Wolverines inserted backup Cade McNamara in the third quarter of Saturday's game against No. 14 Wisconsin, with the Badgers leading, 35-3.
McNamara, a redshirt freshman, completed four straight passes for 74 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion.
McNamara hit Ronnie Bell for 23 yards, then rolled out and hit tight end Nick Eubanks on the sideline for 28 yards. He connected on a fade with Mike Sainristil for a 28-yard touchdown, then completed another fade to Sainristil for the two-point conversion.
Starter Joe Milton was 9-for-19 for 98 yards and two interceptions (which occurred on his first two pass attempts) before he was benched for McNamara.
