ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Craig Roh popped up after crushing San Diego State quarterback Ryan Lindley and started to celebrate. He had another sack -- his second in two games. He forced a fumble -- one of three turnovers the Wolverines forced Saturday.

But for the second consecutive week, it was a release for the Michigan defensive line.

This was a group expected to be No. 22 Michigan's strongest unit this year on either side of the ball. It was a group many believed might be one of the best front lines in the Big Ten. Yet the line mostly was invisible during the first two games, save for small flashes of potential.
