For the first time since 2013, the No. 14 Michigan football team will be playing football on New Year’s Day.

D.J. Durkin has accepted Maryland's head coaching job.

The leader of the Michigan football team’s vaunted defense is changing schools.

Jake Butt was named the Big Ten's Tight End of the Year on Tuesday.

Butt was the conference’s Tight End of the Year, giving the Wolverines three first-team players along with junior cornerback Jourdan Lewis and redshirt freshman safety Jabrill Peppers.

Jourdan Lewis was named to the All-Big Ten team.

Peppers also earned the Thompson-Randle El Freshman of the Year award.

Ohio State proved its superiority over Michigan with another dominant win.

The Wolverines’ surprising season ended with a thud.

Jake Rudock played another good game but injured his shoulder in the fourth quarter.

The first half lived up to the billing, but the second half turned into a one-sided bloodbath.

Jim Harbaugh has a long way to go before his team is atop the Big Ten.

Every single year during the “Ten-Year War,” Michigan and Ohio State played in the last game of the season for the Big Ten championship. Now, that has not been the case since 2007.

Ohio State fans hold up a "Welcome Home, Coach Harbaugh" sign in the fourth quarter of the Wolverines' loss to the Buckeyes.

This sign, reading "WELCOME HOME COACH HARBAUGH," was an open mocking of Michigan fans in their weakest moment.

Junior running De'Veon Smith is tacked by an Ohio State player in the Big House on Saturday.

One glance at Ezekiel Elliott, De’Veon Smith or the box score made it obvious what the Wolverines need to finally fix their Ohio State woes — a run game.

Fifth-year senior quarterback Jake Rudock fumbles the ball during the game against Ohio State at Michigan Stadium on Saturday.

The Wolverines didn’t hesitate to use any of their offensive weapons in any way, but they couldn’t keep up with the high-powered Buckeyes.
