Michigan National Title Celebrated in 1997 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Or the College Football Hall of Fame coach, whom so many thought was not the man for the job, considered part of an outdated machine passed down by Bo and Mo.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 half a century.

To commemorate the anniversary—for one of the most beloved championship teams in Michigan history—the Free Press has released a new hardcover book, “Hail, Yes! 25 Years Later: Relive the 1997 Michigan Wolverines Game to the Rose Bowl and the national championship.”

In addition to Charles Woodson, Brian Griese and Lloyd Carr, fans will always remember the fourth stop against Notre Dame, the comeback 14 points behind Iowa, Woodson’s one-handed interception against Michigan State, the defeat at Penn State that ended the longest winning streak, Woodson’s epic point return against Ohio State and the pulse-pounding final against Washington State and Ryan Leaf in Pasadena.
