UM 27, NW 19 (3OT)

Brady Hoke's Wolverines needed a defensive stand on 4th-and-23 to seal their 27-19 triple-overtime win Saturday over Northwestern at Ryan Field in Evanston. 

Brendan Gibbons' last-second field goal sent the game into overtime, tied 9-9. After a trade-off between kickers, Devin Gardner took matters into his own hands during his final drive. From being sacked no fewer than five times, to coming through in crunch time, Gardner was on both ends of the spectrum. 

The junior quarterback rushed for the game-winning touchdown and converted the ensuing two-point play as insurance. 

Check out 10 lessons learned from the win.
