On Saturday afternoon, Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines faced the Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium as underdogs. After 60 minutes of play, however, it was clear that Michigan was the superior team. After a dominant second half in which Michigan outscored Wisconsin 25-7, the Wolverines cruised to a 38-17 victory over the Badgers.
College football fans reacted to Harbaugh’s first win as an underdog after the impressive win.
“In his seventh season as Michigan’s head coach, Jim Harbaugh has won as an underdog for the first time,” said reporter Chris Vannini.

Michigan just walked into Madison and beat Wisconsin by 21. This wasn’t a “Notre Dame scores 31 points in the 4th quarter to make the score look more lopsided than the game was” kind of performance. This was 60 minutes of ass kicking being handed out by a damn good Michigan team.

The Wolverines’ next game is against the Cornhuskers in Nebraska. Michigan won’t play a ranked opponent until October 30, when it travels to East Lansing to face the Michigan State Spartans. Can Michigan go undefeated until the season finale against Ohio State?
