At this point people were on the edges of their seats at home and inside of the stadium. They knew that what they were witnessing was an instant classic and everything that is so fun and enjoyable about the sport was on full display for the world to see in the game's most sacred stage.

Michigan got the ball first and it only took two plays for Blake Corum to score one of the most legendary touchdowns in this game's storybook history. In a matter of minutes Michigan went from seven down to seven ahead and the shift of the tide was virtually complete.

Alabama had one final opportunity to survive for double overtime or go home to start their offseason. Jalen Milroe used his legs to get within striking distance. He rushed inside the 10 for first and goal and gave his offense four shots at paydirt.


Following two failed runs Milroe tossed it to Jermaine Burton who snuck inside the five and fourth and the goal was upon us. Both schools called a timeout. Then Milroe settled in, he motioned his back out and the snap ensued. Michigan's defense blew Milroe up and pandemonium erupted in Pasadena. Michigan football had secured its first national championship berth in 26 years in the same exact place where they had won it all in 1998.
