ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan wide receiver Roy Roundtree has bounced back from a slow start this season.

Roundtree has 203 yards receiving in his last two games to surpass his production from the first eight games of the year.

He leaped to tip and catch a 53-yard pass Saturday that set a field goal with 2 seconds left to extend a game the Wolverines won 38-31 in overtime over Northwestern.

Roundtree finished with 139 yards receiving -- the second highest total of his career -- against the Wildcats.

The 23rd-ranked Wolverines hope the fifth-year senior can help them finish the regular season with wins Saturday at home against Iowa and the next week at Ohio State.
