Article at sportsline about the game's big matchup, notes that it shaped up as the blockbuster battle that everyone expected:

Suggests that Clowney gave Lewan problems, but that Michigan's All American lineman largely held his own. Lewan was not responsible for Clowney on the big play that nailed Vince Smith in the backfield and resulted in a fumble.

EDIT: After the game, according to the News, Lewan sought Clowney out. "I went up to him after the game and told him, 'You're one of the best defensive ends I've ever played against.' He said, 'You're the best tackle I've ever played against.' So that's a great compliment to have, but none of this matters because we didn't win the damn game."

In case anyone is in the mood for a quick topic change, I had an '80s Michigan football flashback a couple of hours ago. I saw Django Unchained (generally recommended, btw) and, afterward, stayed with a friend to watch the credits roll.

Among the ocean of names was Jarrod Bunch. It took me a second to make the football association, then I remembered that he was doing the Hollywood thing. In this movie he was "Banjo" (uncredited). Here's his IMDB page:

B1G & Bowl Games

B1G & Bowl Games

Submitted by MGrether on January 1st, 2013 at 2:44 PM

So far today, B1G standing tall against a tough order of games.

- Northwestern beating SEC Miss St.

- Nebraska with a slight lead against SEC Georgia

- Michigan within 1 score of SEC S. Carolina (1 Special Teams play making the difference)

Now, Purdue is getting wholloped... but you can't make Chicken soup out of Chicken Poop.

For a conference that was not supposed to win any of its bowl games, we are not doing too shabby today, especially against the number one conference in da'Universe.
