That Team Up North finally stopped the bleeding, and managed to win a home game last week against the Lions of Penn State. Did the Wolverines get a little additional help “under the lights”? Let’s see what our officials think:

Amidst the chaos of last week’s college football games, there were a number of controversial or questionable plays. Today, our officiating team takes a look at a call that may have cost Michigan a victory, and certainly didn’t help cool down Brady Hoke’s hot seat.
