Highlights: Michigan 27, Wisconsin 13


Mario Manningham's second touchdown catch put No. 6 Michigan ahead late in the third quarter and Mike Hart added a score.


Michigan (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) finished strong - scoring 17 straight points - after it was 10-all, a week after its dominating victory at Notre Dame.


After taking the lead twice in the first half, the Badgers (3-1, 0-1) struggled the rest of the game.


Wisconsin's P.J. Hill, who entered the game averaging a Big Ten-best 138.3 yards rushing, was held to 54 yards on 20 carries against the nation's top-ranked run defense. He caught five passes for 64 yards, including a 29-yard reception that gave the Badgers a 7-0 lead.


The Badgers went 77 yards on a drive late in the fourth quarter, but stalled at the 8 and settled for Taylor Mehlhaff's field goal to pull within two TDs with 2:19 left. The ensuing onside kick went out of bounds, ending Wisconsin's comeback hopes.
