Despite a mistake-riddled game, Michigan outlasted Alabama in overtime in the Rose Bowl semifinal. Special teams were a particular issue while the offense stalled in the third quarter. The Wolverines stopped the Tide at the goal line to secure their spot in Houston. Washington also won in a thriller, nearly blowing a nine-point lead over Texas but making the stop in the red zone as time expired.

Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. further cemented his case as a Heisman finalist. He faces his stiffest test yet against a Michigan defense that held opponents to the third-lowest passer rating this season. The Huskies’ offensive line stifled a ferocious Texas pass rush in the Sugar Bowl. The Joe Moore Award-winning unit goes against another fierce pass rush in Michigan.

Running back Blake Corum is likely to see his fair share of work offensively against a Washington defense that surrendered 180 yards on the ground against Texas. Corum punched in the game-winning touchdown, pacing Michigan’s all-time rushing TD number with it.

Michigan seeks its first national title since 1997 and its first outright title since 1948. Washington last captured a championship in 1991 and has never claimed an outright title.
