This is the first game following the Desmond 2 pt conversion trip vs Little Bro. Apparently we fell from first to tenth following that bullshit. During the intro to the game, it was mentioned that Michigan had not lost back to back home games since 1967. That's pretty ridiculous.
As a sidenote, during one of their pre-commercial bits, they had Keith Jackson on camera saying that if he had two broadcasts to do, one would be from the Rose Bowl, and the other would be at Michigan. I love (and miss) that guy as a play-by-play man.
