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.
With triple-option expert Rex Kern, future NFL Hall of Fame defensive back Jack Tatum and a host of other weapons on both sides of the ball, Ohio State marched into Michigan Stadium on Nov. 22, 1969, expecting to coast to victory against No. 12 Michigan.
In Fielding Yost’s first year as head coach of the Michigan football team, he did a few things — went undefeated with a 11-0 record, outscored his opponents, 550-0, and turned a fifth-place team around to become Rose Bowl and national champions for the first time ever.
