Welcome to the show, Cade McNamara.
The sophomore quarterback's debut for Michigan football was a signal of just how dominant the Wolverines were Saturday night. McNamara, the backup for Joe Milton, took the field with about 2 minutes left and No. 17 Michigan leading No. 21 Minnesota, 49-24.
The Wolverines rolled the Golden Gophers behind a steady performance from starting quarterback Joe Milton, a strong performance by the Michigan backfield and a stifling performance by the Michigan front seven.
Wolverines fans on Twitter were rightfully pleased.

Many fans were excited to see running back Chris Evans break into the end zone for the first time since 2018.
It feels like just a win to see Chris Evans back in a Michigan uniform, running well, and scoring a TD! Well deserved!!! #GoBlue

Great story for him. Caps off the night with a TD.
Michigan is rolling on offense. How delightful.
