2014 certainly feels like a long time ago in Michigan. The fourth-ranked Wolverines entered Saturday undefeated and quickly kept their feet on the gas pedal, scoring 43 first-half points against Rutgers.
The early offensive production helped the team surpass Michigan’s total for the entire 2014 season, according to 247 Sports’ Zach Shaw. This Michigan team accomplished the feat in less than six games.
Michigan football has now scored as many points (251) through <5.5 games in 2016 as it did in ALL of 2014.

Shaw’s tweet was published after Michigan scored 29 points. The team quickly scored a couple more touchdowns before the half ended.
The 2014 Wolverines finished 5-7 and fired coach Brady Hoke following a 42-28 loss to Ohio State. Under coach Jim Harbaugh, the program is 15-3 and on pace for another blowout victory Saturday night.
