Michigan football’s 1997 national title celebrated in new book

Michigan Wolverines fans will never forget the future Pro Football Hall of Famer who won the Heisman Trophy by intercepting passes, catching passes and returning punts.

Or the walk-on quarterback who became the MVP of the Rose Bowl.

Or the College Football Hall of Fame coach who so many thought wasn’t the man for the job, considered part of an antiquated machinery passed on from Bo and Mo.

Believe it or not, it’s time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the incredible 1997 season when the Wolverines went undefeated, won a thrilling Rose Bowl and captured the national championship, the school’s 11th and first in nearly a half-century.

To commemorate the anniversary – for one of the most-beloved championship teams in Michigan history – the Free Press has crafted a new hardcover book, “Hail, Yes! 25 Years Later: Relive the 1997 Michigan Wolverines’ Run to the Rose Bowl and the National Championship. ”

Besides Charles Woodson, Brian Griese and Lloyd Carr, fans will always remember the fourth-down stop against Notre Dame, the comeback from 14 points down against Iowa, Woodson’s one-handed interception against Michigan State, the rout at Penn State that ended the country’s longest winning streak, Woodson’s epic punt return against Ohio State and the heart-pumping finale against Washington State and Ryan Leaf in Pasadena.
