The Michigan Wolverines have achieved a remarkable feat by winning their first football national title this century, after finishing their perfect 15-0 season on a high note. Their dominance was exhibited by their stellar ground attack and lockdown defense, which proved too much for Michael Penix Jr. and the Washington Huskies. The Huskies were pressured by the Michigan defensive line, with two interceptions, a sack for loss and 59 total tackles that held them to only 301 total yards, which was less than the Michigan rushing yards (303) alone. Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy also showcased his skills in the air and on the ground, with his long 22-yard carry on third-and-long in the third quarter. The defensive MVP was earned by Will Johnson, who made a third-quarter interception and four TOTs while Blake Corum won the Offensive MVP after notching 134 rushing yards. In the game, Corum also added two rushing touchdowns, tallying 58 of his career, which is a school record. Head coach Jim Harbaugh, in his 9th season, has now collected his first national championship with the Wolverines. This game was the perfect end to the 10-year stint of the four-team College Football Playoff, as the playoffs will be expanding to 12 teams for the 2024-25 season.
