The No. 11 Wolverines won the game, 33-17, harassing the No. 17 Gators’ offense all day to the tune of 6 sacks and 11 tackles for loss. They played the neutral site game at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, home of the Dallas Cowboys.
While No. 1 Alabama vs. Florida State was the clear-cut biggest game of the day, Michigan-Florida safely held that title for its 3:30 p.m. timeslot.
