The Michigan defense, led by defensive end Aidan Hutchinson and linebacker Josh Ross, harassed Washington quarterback Dylan Morris all night, sacking him five times and forcing two interceptions. The Huskies, who had a remarkable run to the title game after winning the Pac-12, could not match the physicality and intensity of the Wolverines, who claimed their first national championship since 1997. The victory capped off a historic season for Michigan, who went 13-1 and won the Big Ten for the first time since 2004. Head coach Jim Harbaugh, who had faced criticism for his inability to win big games, finally delivered on his promise to restore Michigan to its former glory.

The Wolverines celebrated with their fans, who stormed the field after the final whistle, in a scene of jubilation and ecstasy. Michigan has once again asserted itself as a powerhouse of college football, and its future looks bright under Harbaugh’s leadership.
