Michigan linebacker turned running back throws pass for first down

Jim Harbaugh is pulling out trick plays for Michigan against Ohio State.

Faced with a third-and-short in the third quarter on Saturday, Harbaugh had Kalel Mullings in the backfield.

Mullings is listed as a linebacker on the team roster but switched to the offense during the week because the backfield was shorthanded due to Blake Corum’s knee injury.

Mullings, the linebacker and running back, became the passer, too, as he threw a jump pass to Luke Schoonmaker for 15 yards to extend the drive.

The Wolverines kept possession as the third quarter ended and were driving at the start of the fourth, looking to build on their 24-20 lead.

J.J. McCarthy added to his 3 touchdown passes with a run for a touchdown and the Wolverines led 31-20 in the battle of the unbeaten Big Ten teams.
