Cornerback Charles Woodson returned a punt for a touchdown in Michigan's win over Ohio State at Michigan Stadium.

From the beginning, the 1997 Michigan football team was different.

The Michigan football team earned a share of the national championship with its win over Washington State in the Rose Bowl.

When No. 1 Michigan entered the 1998 Rose Bowl, it had an undefeated 11-0 record and a Big Ten Championship title.

The Michigan football team came back from down 17 in the fourth quarter to overcome its in-state rival, Michigan State, and claim the Paul Bunyan Trophy once again.

It’s Oct. 30, 2004. Usher’s “Yeah!” is blasting from the speakers in the Big House. Though it’s unseasonably warm for late October in Michigan – the day’s high is 73 degrees – the student section is uncharacteristically quiet.

Wide receiver Desmond Howard struck the Heisman pose after returning a punt for a 93-yard touchdown in Michigan's win over Ohio State.

Desmond Howard caught the ball at Michigan’s seven-yard line and immediately made his move.

Only one man was near him at that time, and ABC announcer Keith Jackson noticed, too.

“One man,” Jackson said. “Goodbye! Hello, Heisman!”

Wide receiver Mario Manningham caught a game-winning touchdown pass from quarterback Chad Henne with no time remaining to upset the third-ranked Nittany Lions at Michigan Stadium.

This was supposed to be the year for Penn State.

Michigan coach Lloyd Carr won his final game in his tenure as the Wolverines' head man.

Chad Henne knew he had to make the last five minutes of the game count if he and his Wolverine teammates were going to come out on top one final time.

Michigan Stadium hosted its first night game in its history in 2011, when Michigan defeated Notre Dame, 35-31.

Denard Robinson and the Michigan offense lined up on their own 20-yard line with just thirty seconds remaining.

Like they had been several times throughout the back-and-forth game, the Wolverines were down against Notre Dame — this time by three points, 31-28.

The Michigan football team dominated Florida in every facet of the 2016 Citrus Bowl.

In a season that included a heartbreaking defeat to Michigan State on that last-second punt botch and a blowout loss to Ohio State, the Michigan football team finished Jim Harbaugh’s first year — the 2015-16 season — as head coach on a high note with a dominant 41-7 victory

Abe Cohn was a key part of Michigan's win over Chicago in 1918.

Before there was the fierce rivalry with Ohio State, the Michigan football team had a different November showdown marked on its schedule.
