Dominating from the onset, Michigan secured a decisive 34-13 win at NRG Stadium in Houston, claiming their first national title since 1997 and their 12th championship overall.
Right from the kickoff, Michigan took command and maintained an unyielding lead throughout the game. Facing a formidable opponent in Washington, known for its potent offense led by Michael Penix Jr., the Wolverines’ defense stood firm, restricting the Huskies to a season-low in points.
Fueling the offense was a dynamic ground game orchestrated by Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum.

Despite adversity, including suspensions and controversies, head coach Jim Harbaugh guided Michigan to an impeccable 15-0 season, clinching his maiden national championship with the Wolverines. As celebrations ensue, speculation looms regarding Harbaugh’s future with the team, but for now, Michigan revels in its well-deserved triumph after 26 long years.
