Bo Schembechler wasn't too happy with this outcome, as the Hawkeyes shutout Michigan 26-0. It was the first time Michigan was shutout since 1977. Owen Gill rushed for 85 yards and Ronnie Harmon for 63, and they both scored a touchdown. Chuck Long completed 14 of 20 passes for 146 yards, and Tom Nichol kicked two field goals. Another version of the full game can be found at the University of Michigan. The Michigan Replay Show with Bo Schembechler can also be found at the University of Michigan.
