You're going to want to be sitting down for this: Almost a year to the day, Michigan's long touchdown draught from the wide receiver position if finally over.

When Nico Collins hauled in a 44-yard touchdown pass from Shea Patterson in the second quarter of the Wolverines' home game against Western Michigan, the sophomore wideout became the first Michigan wide receiver to catch a touchdown pass since Sept. 9, 2017.

364 days. Let that sink in for a minute.

Grant Perry held the distinction of being the last Michigan wide receiver to catch a touchdown pass when he scored on a 33-yard toss from Wilton Speight in the Wolverines' 36-14 win last season.
