The contest with No. The story of 3 TCU revolved around the fact that No. 2 Michigan was too large, too physical and too dominant to support the Horned Frogs. TCU was up to the challenge, it turned out.

They then spent the rest of the evening playing behind. It looked like the Wolverines were on the verge of pulling off an amazing come from behind win, but the Horned Frogs always had an answer.
