Best Classi. - Tver? As seniors Anthony Thomas, Steve Hutchinson and Eric Wilson walked to mid-field for the coin toss of the Florida Citrus Bowl, they had the opportunity to do what no other senior class in the history of the University of Michigan had been able to do: win four consecutive bowl games. The only obstacle left for the senior class to conquer was a surprising but young nine and three Auburn team. While the pundits and logic predicted a Wolverine blowout, the Citrus Bowl was not decided until late in the fourth quarter, when Thomas pounded through the Auburn defensive line on every play. Thomas earned his second career Citrus bowl MVP award by rushing for 1 82 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries. Thomas ' first touchdown came on an 1 1 yard run in the second quarter, on the play Thomas became Michigan ' s all- time leading rusher and he finished his career with 4,472 yards and 55 touchdowns on 924 carries. In the post game press conference, Coach Lloyd Carr offered high praise for Thomas saying that he " couldn ' t be prouder of anybody than Anthony Thomas. " Junior quarterback Drew Henson also had an outstanding Citrus Bowl. Henson completed 1 5 of 20 passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns. Henson connected with his favorite target, junior David Terrell, four times for 1 36 yards and a touchdown. In the days following the game, Terrell decided to forgo his one remaining year of college eligibility and enter the NFL draft. Both Michigan and Auburn ' s offenses were able to drive down the field seemingly at will. While the Michigan defense was able to contain sensational Auburn running back Rudi Johnson, they were unable to stop untouted Auburn quarterback Ben Leard. Leard threw for 394 yards and three touchdowns on In his last game as a Wolverine, junior David Terrell leaps over an Auburn corner to catch a Drew Henson touchdown pass.

While Leard kept Auburn close, the strong play of senior Eric Wilson prevented Auburn ' s offense from dominating the game. Wilson recorded four tackles for a loss and one sack on his way to earning the defensive MVP award. With a 31 -28 victory, the Wolverine ' s graduating seniors made the argument to be known as the best class in the history of the football program.
