Michigan routs Appalachian State 52-14 in rematch

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Devin Gardner threw three touchdown passes to Devin Funchess in the first half and Michigan went on to rout Appalachian State 52-14 in the season opener on Saturday, seven years after being on the losing end of perhaps the biggest upset in college football history.
   The Wolverines coasted to victory after Gardner threw TD passes to Funchess on their first two drives, and connected with him for a third score late in the first half to give them a 21-0 lead.
   The Mountaineers matched Michigan's game-opening TD the first time they had the ball in 2007 and in a closely contested game, they became the first second-tier program to beat a Top 25 team after blocking a field goal as time expired.
   There wasn't much drama in the rematch.
   Next week, though, might be suspenseful when the Wolverines go to Notre Dame.
