ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Chris Evans found his grip and his footing for a 56-yard catch that helped set up Michigan’s fourth touchdown Saturday against Maryland.
One play after Michigan wide receiver Drake Harris was penalized for offensive pass interference on a long catch on the Michigan sideline, Evans caught a screen pass from Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight. Evans initially bobbled the ball, but propelled himself upright and dashed to the goal line, where appeared to fall into the end zone.
Jim Harbaugh wasn’t pleased with the call, but had to be secretly pleased with Evans’ effort.

Evans’ dive was reviewed, and replay officials ruled that Evans was down at the Maryland 1-yard line. One play later, Khalid Hill scored his ninth rushing touchdown of the season to help Michigan to a 28-0 lead with 3:52 left in the first half.
