Michigan football turns to Cade McNamara at QB and watches him score immediately

Michigan football has made a switch at quarterback.

The Wolverines inserted backup Cade McNamara in the third quarter of Saturday's game against No. 14 Wisconsin, with the Badgers leading, 35-3.

McNamara, a redshirt freshman, completed four straight passes for 74 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion.
