By now you've probably heard the story that is gripping the sports world ... am I talking about Tiger Woods shooting a 62? Brett Favre being named captain? Jeter breaking Gehrig's Yankee hit record?
No, we're talking about the biggest story in college football. Michigan's pulse-pounding win over ND at Michigan Stadium, this afternoon in front of 100,000+ Maize and Blue-clad partisans and not fewer than a few thousand Irish fans. Today Michigan came back and beat No. 18 Notre Dame, 38-34, in the biggest win since the Tom Brady era.
Feel free to check with ESPN for the specifics... and please get some highlights via Sportscenter because there were ALOT. All I will say is that Michigan did a great job staying on the field against a pretty potent Irish offense and this kid at QB, Tate Forcier (pictured) had an amazing and unbelievable game.
Forcier efficiently drove Michigan's offense today to the tune of 240 yards and 2 TD's but he also rushed for a crucial TD in the 3rd quarter (a 31 yard run up the gut on a 4th down!) AND after throwing a late interception which lead to ND taking the lead, he drove the team 58 yards with 2:13 left for a game winning TD.
Again, check the highlights and listen to the sports guys talk about this because this was just a HUGE win, plain and simple. And Forcier burst onto the scene, big time. As Sean McDonough said "there's a new star in college football".
On a side note, there's a new Michigan fan in college football and his name is Matthew. Check out the pics of him watching the game.
