Official Game Program


The Hawks moved the ball on their first possession down into Michigan's scoring range, but were unable to execute a halfback pass trick play. The short FG was uncharacteristically missed by Caleb Shudak. Michigan ran 67 yards for a TD, and it was quickly 7-0. On their next series, Michigan ran their own halfback pass, completing a 75-yard TD pass, taking a 14-0 lead. The Hawks drove down again, but could only muster a short FG. The Hawks were behind 14-3, but were still in the game despite the big plays from Michigan. After the first series in the 2nd half, Alex Padilla replaced Spencer Petras, and drove them down in scoring position, but could not execute a 4th and 5 from inside the Michigan 10-yard line. The game seemed to be over after that play.

Aside from a few drives, the offense struggled most of the night. Petras and Padilla were a combined 19 of 37 with 175 yards and one interception. The offense rushed 33 times for 104 yards. The defense eventually wore down against the big Wolverine line, and the athleticism was too much for Iowa, with Michigan making a series of acrobatic and one-handed catches. 3 TDs in the 4th quarter blew the game open. With the win, Michigan will go to the CFB playoffs to compete for the national title.

The Hawks did manage two interceptions, setting a new school record with 24 in a season.
