ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Braylon Edwards experienced a joy millions of NFL dollars couldn’t buy.

Edwards caught two touchdown passes to help Michigan erase a 17-point, fourth-quarter deficit in just 5:44, and grabbed a third TD in triple overtime to lift the Wolverines to a 45-37 win over Michigan State on Saturday.

“This is why I came back,” said Edwards, who chose to be a Michigan senior rather than an NFL rookie this year. “To be honest, I’ve never felt like this after a game.”

The Spartans have probably never left Michigan Stadium — where they haven’t won since 1990 — more devastated.


Braylon Edwards’ second of three TD catches helped tie the score.
