29 Days - 30 B1G Years - 1982

There are champions, and then there are CHAMPIONS. It's not a question of the program that wins, it's a question as to the success of the team. In 1982, the Wolverines were champions, no capital letters needed.

1982 Michigan won 8 of 9 Big Ten games. They won the league title. They finished 8-4. They lost at Notre Dame. They lost in Ann Arbor to UCLA. They lost at Ohio State. They lost a rematch with UCLA in the Rose Bowl. They were Big Ten Champions, but not one of the historically relevant Michigan teams.

Penn State had a pretty memorable year, too.
