Quinn Nordin added two field goals.
Junior receiver Grant Perry hauled in a short pass from Speight and turned it up field for a 33-yard score for the other touchdown.
Speight was 17-of-29 for 221 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Keep an eye out for how many rushing yards MI might have the ability to install on Cincinnati after 215 contrary to a Florida defense. MI finished with 414 yards. Cincy cuts UM lead to 17-14. The drive was extended when MI converted on fourth-and-eight on a 20-yard pass from Speight to Kekoa Crawford putting the Wolverines at the Bearcats' 12.
Compared to last week MI football seemed less well prepared, less well coached, and frankly less motivated than they were a week ago.
With just less than seven minutes, MI added a safety when the punt snap sailed into the end zone, and was batted out for a 33-yard loss. It is also only the second time MI has had two interceptions for a touchdown in one game since 2000, according to ESPN stats and info.
NFLPA files request to block Ezekiel Elliott suspension
Asked if it would be common for an investigator to make a disciplinary recommendation in such a case, Lockhart said: "No". The NFLPA filed a petition stating that Elliot was not treated fairly after being suspended for six-games.
MI led 17-7 after a first half that began with a well-executed 80-yard touchdown drive and ended with the Wolverines' final five drives that went like this: fumble, field goal, fumble, three-and-out, punt. Cincinnati gave up 224 to Austin Peay.
After the game, MI coach Jim Harbaugh said that Speight has a bad habit of handing the ball off with one hand, which can cause the ball to slip and be fumbled.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Ty Chandler returned the opening kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown, Carlin Fils-aime had two scoring runs and No. 25 Tennessee breezed to a victory over Football Championship Subdivision program Indiana State.
On Michigan's next drive, Speight and Crawford had a timing issue on a handoff and fumbled. Freshman cornerback David Long left the game in the second half with a leg injury and his replacement Brandon Watson proceeded to hurt his shoulder, but Harbaugh said both players are fine and should be ready for Saturday. The next MI possession, Grant Perry appeared to make a miraculous third-down catch, but after a review, officials ruled it an incompletion although it looked like it bounced off his hand into his arms.
