Michigan 27 #9 Wisconsin 25

In front of a crowd of 109,833 at the Big House watching the Wolverines play their 500th game at Michigan Stadium, the Wolverines mounted the biggest comeback win in the history of playing at The Big House. Michigan rallied from a 19-0 halftime deficit to pull off a thrilling 27-25 victory. Following are the game summary, boxscore, play-by-play chart (.pdf), postgame notes, quotes, player participation chart, photos (MGoBlue; Detroit News; Free Press) and video (press conference; BTN game highlights; ESPN game highlights). Much analysis to follow when my heart starts working again. These thrilling games are killing me. Go Blue!

Arrrrgh, I can't belive M pulled it off. How sweet it is. Now if we can just keep this momentum going against Illini.

UM football will be a case of 2 steps backward and 1.5 steps forward for some time.
We will definitely see more of the 1st half of the UW game. Bank on it.
Michigan football fans don't understand right now, but they need to be patient.
This team is so young. You cannot go back in time far enough to find a Michigan team with so much youth at QB, OL, WR and even on defense as 2008. It's never happened before and will probably not happen again for a long time.
You'd have to go back to 1979 to find a Michigan OL and QB situation this inexperienced, and even that year most of the OL and QBs (Dickey and Wangler) at least had a few game snaps under their belt. Threet had zero game snaps coming into the season.
Expect a few bad losses and a few improbable Michigan wins before this season is out.
If I'm PSU, MSU or Ohio State, I'd be very afraid which wacked out Wolverine team is going to show up.
