Michigan football thrashes Colorado State in its season opener

Even though it wasn't done, Michigan football won its first game of the season.

No. 6 Michigan took an early lead and never looked back. Saturday, they won 51-7 at Michigan Stadium.

In the game, Colorado State had a total of just 219 yards and only three drives that went into Michigan territory.

The Wolverines had solid field position early but struggled to score.

In fact, Michigan's best-looking drive in the first half was a 7-play touchdown drive that was all runs.

Two offensive linemen were important to Michigan's running success.

McCarthy was 4 for 4 and threw for 30 yards, but his third-quarter 20-yard touchdown run got the loudest cheers.
