The Universitys football team ' s three losses were by a ^^ \ tota ' f seven points. A missed Wolverine field goal, a just-barely-good m m If Purdue field goal, and a fumble -all with less than four minutes remaining - cost the Wolverines three games and possibly a place in the national title game. Despite its heartbreaking losses, the team collected the program ' s 40th Big Ten Championship and earned a bowl appearance for the program ' s 26th consecutive year. The 2000 season began on a hot day in early September with the sixth ranked Wolverines destroying Bowling Green in Michigan Stadium. Redshirt freshman quarterback John Navarre stepped in for injured junior Drew Henson and promptly tied a school record for touchdown passes in a single game with four against Bowling Green. After their thorough dismantling of Bowling Green, the Wolverines appeared ready to surpass the expectations bestowed upon them by media, which tabbed the Wolverines as the preseason favorite to win the Big Ten Conference. The Maize and Blue entered the second week of the season as the third ranked team in the nation and the Rice University Owls quickly discovered why the Wolverines were so highly touted. The team set a new program record by scoring 28 points in the first quarter. Anthony Thomas juked and dragged Rice defenders for 131 yards and two touchdowns on only 14 carries during the rout. After two dominant performances, a confident Wolverine team headed to Pasadena to take on the UCLA Bruins and the oppressive Southern California heat. While the temperature on the field reached 1 10 degrees, Navarre never got hot; he completed just 1 of 10 passes in the second half. The Wolverines stayed close to the Bruins all game long due to the heroic effort of senior Anthony Thomas. Thomas carried the ball 24 times for 184 yards and had a chance to win the game. However, with just 3:27 left in the game, junior Hayden Epstein missed a 24 yard field goal, giving the Bruins a three point upset win. The Wolverines rebounded from the tough road loss at UCLA by rallying in the second half to beat Illinois under the leadership of the still injured Henson. Henson entered the game in the second half and rallied the team, with the help of the officials, from a two- touchdown deficit to a narrow win. After the Wolverine ' s two close road games, they returned to the Big House to beat Wisconsin for the 45th time in the program ' s history. Henson made his first career start and celebrated by throwing for 2 57 yards and a playground style touchdown to junior David Terrell. The Wolverines brief two game winning streak came to an end when they traveled to West Lafayette, to (continued on page 162) Auburn (Citris Bowl) 31-28 Overall Record: 9-3 Big Ten: 6-2 The Wolverine defense swarms Illinois running back Rockey Harvey.
