With College Football Playoff hopes, the No. 4 Michigan football team (7-0 Big Ten, 9-1 overall) is looking for that top-four spot in the Cotton Bowl or Orange Bowl. Indiana (2-5, 5-5) needs a win just to be bowl eligible.
The Michigan football team had easily made its way to the red zone, but the touchdown was eluding them. All it took was fullback Jack Weisenburger to push his way through for the one-yard score to give the Wolverines the lead.
The 1927 season of Michigan football brought a new coach in Elton Wieman, following the retirement of Fielding Yost. It saw Bennie Oosterbaan become a first-team All-American for the third straight year. The Wolverines also graduated All-American quarterback and halfback Bennie Friedman.
