Michigan rediscovers TE Funchess in passing game

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan has rediscovered tight end Devin Funchess. The sophomore set career highs with seven receptions and 151 yards receiving on Saturday against Minnesota. He caught a 24-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass late in the first half and made some more catches in the second half to help the Wolverines pull away and beat the Golden Gophers 42-13. Funchess had a total of just eight catches for 145 yards and a score in Michigan's first four games, and insisted he was patient while waiting to produce in ways that would show up in the box score. The Wolverines can take another step toward their quest to win a conference championship for the first time in 2004 by beating Penn State (3-2, 0-1) on the road Saturday, a week after the Nittany Lions lost by 20 points at Indiana.
