With the most victories in college football history, the University of Michigan Wolverines have a long and storied history. They have won forty-three Big Ten championships, eleven national titles, and twenty-one bowl games. These accomplishments and more are celebrated in Miracle Moments in Michigan Wolverines Football History. Derek and Steve Kornacki detail many of the Wolverines' greatest moments including legendary coach Fielding Yost's 1901 "point a minute" team that posted a perfect 11–0 record and outscored their opponents, 550–0; the opening of Michigan Stadium, "The Big House" in 1927; the hard-fought "Snow Bowl" victory over Ohio State in 1950; the 1969 victory over Ohio State that broke the Buckeyes' twenty-two-game winning streak and launched "The Ten-Year War;" the 1998 Rose Bowl victory over Washington State that clinched their first National Championship since 1948; and much more. All the great players (including Heisman Trophy winners Tom Harmon, Desmond Howard, and Charles Woodson) and coaches are highlighted in Miracle Moments in Michigan Football History, a must-have for all fans of the maize and blue.
