I wonder if my University of Michigan friends got any sleep last night. It’s got to be thrilling to see their team win a National Championship for the first time in decades plus have the Detroit Lions in the playoffs. Sure, I’m a little jelly, since I’m a Michigan State Spartan. But, I’m happy for my Wolverine friends and family. You guys played a great season and game against Washington. Let’s relive the magic with some of the best moments from the Michigan vs. Washington National Championship game.
While the Washington Huskies played their hears out, this game became lopsided at the end, with the Wolverines being victorious, 34-13. The first half of the game was much more even. I wasn’t even sure what was going to win going into the half. But, the final quarter really showed the strength of this Michigan team. Congratulations to Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines. They’re are the 2024 National Championship winners.
The 2024 College Football Playoff National Championship took place on Monday (Jan. 8), and it made for a late night. These are the days when I miss coffee. The game had No. 1 Michigan going up against No. 2 Washington at NRG Stadium in Houston. Michigan’s win marked their first national title since back in 1997. As for Washington, if they had won this game, it would have marked their first national title since 1991. Michigan got to the National Championship thanks to a close 27-20 overtime win over No. 4 Alabama in the Rose Bowl semifinal. Washington got to this national title game following a 37-31 win over No. 3 Texas in the Sugar Bowl.
Now that’s we’ve gone through the numbers, let’s get into some of the best moments from this game. This showing is something Wolverine fans are going to want to savor for a long time. I don’t blame them. Maybe with Michigan State’s new head coach, we’ll get some moments like this coming up.
