All of us here have seen some pretty spectacular bowl games that Michigan has played in and either won or come close only to fall by just a few. For me I have seen (in my teen years) the Wolverines play in quite a few Rose Bowls sadly to fall to both USC and Texas in 2005 which in my opinion is one of the greatest Rose Bowl games I've ever seen despite the loss. I was only 8 in 1997 but so my memories of the Rose Bowl game between Michigan and Wash St is still embeded in my brain and always will be. I consider that game to be part of my childhood but for me the greatest bowl win in my memory was the 2000 Orange Bowl vs Alabama. I was only 11 years old at the time but I remembered watching that game with my dad and how close it was at the end. Tom Brady blew us away in that game and seeing Anthony Thomas in his final game was also special. I loved the A Train. My first Michigan jersey was a blue #32. Beating OSU then going on to win against Bama. I went nuts when they missed the PTA as Michigan won in OT. One of the greatest games in Michigan history and my favorite bowl game.
The 2003 Outback Bowl, 2005 Rose Bowl and 2008 Capital One Bowl and of course the 2012 Sugar Bowl are in my top 5.
