Statistical Oddities: Michigan Continues To Embrace Overtime

Each week, Michael Spath takes a look at unique and rare numbers emerging from Michigan football.

9-2 • Michigan’s overtime record since the extra sessions were added in 2002. U-M won its first six OT contests and has won its last three.

10 • Games in which a true freshman running back at Michigan had 25 carries or more in a game. Zach Charbonnet’s 33 attempts Saturday represented the third-highest total ever by a true frosh ball carrier, tying him with Mike Hart, who owns the top two spots.

20 • Tackles for senior viper Khaleke Hudson without a tackle for loss this year, the fourth greatest accumulation of stops in a season before a TFL among front-seven Wolverine starters in program history, trailing only Kenny Demens (30 tackles in 2012), Carl Diggs (27 tackles in 2002) and Joe Bolden (25 tackles in 2014).

92.9 • Career field-goal percentage for sophomore kicker Jake Moody, the best in school history for any Wolverine with 10 or more career attempts. Kenny Allen is second at 82.2 percent (37 for 45) from 2015-16.

You guys are both right. That's what I get for trusting the Bentley Historical Library at Michigan!

Their first OT was 1/1/2000 over Alabama in Orange Bowl. Per Wikipedia (ugh, grain of salt, etc.), M OT record is 10-3.
