Dandy Dozen: Most memorable games
Question of the Day
Michigan’s miraculous comeback against Notre Dame will go down as one of the most memorable games in college football history.
But it seems that we’ve been saying that a lot over the past few seasons. Rarely does a week go by when there isn’t at least one great game.
With that in mind, here are the 12 most memorable regular-season games from the last five seasons:
1) Appalachian State 34, Michigan 32 (Sept. 1, 2007)
The Wolverines came into the season ranked fifth in the country, with a team that included Mike Hart, Jake Long and Chad Henne. Appalachian State was (and still is) one of the top FCS programs, but nobody thought the Mountaineers had a chance at the Big House on the first Saturday of the season.
Not only was it a great upset, it was a wild game. Michigan took the lead with 4:36 remaining. Armanti Edwards and App State came back to go ahead on a field goal with 26 seconds left. Then Corey Lynch sealed it for the Mountaineers by blocking Michigan’s last-play field goal attempt.
2) Auburn 28, Alabama 27 (Nov. 26, 2010)
Auburn was undefeated, Cam Newton’s recruitment was being investigated by the NCAA and Alabama was the defending national champion. The Iron Bowl is always huge, but this one was bursting at the seams even before it started.
The Tide jumped out to a 24-0 lead in the first half, but Newton led Auburn to the greatest comeback in school history.
If that wasn’t enough to make this game go down in history, Auburn’s famous oak trees at Toomer’s Corner were poisoned not long after this game.
3) Michigan 35, Notre Dame 31 (Sept. 10, 2011)
The first night game at the Big House provided a mesmerizing setting to a wildly sloppy game between two of the most storied programs in history.
Denard Robinson and Michigan erased a 24-7 fourth-quarter deficit, and the teams combined for three scores in the last 1:12, capped by a Robinson’s TD pass to Roy Roundtree with 2 seconds left.
