Dynasty Update: Overtime and Jet Lag

The 2021 season wrapped up the way it started, with Ace Journeyman's squad turning in Jekyll and Hyde performances in close games. The team that finally jelled after the Penn State game seemed off kilter going into their big annual showdown with Ohio State. The run game and defense - staples of Journeyman-led teams - failed miserably and the pass game couldn't keep up with the top-ranked Buckeyes, losing 31-38 in overtime. The game was sealed with an interception while Michigan was driving to tie the score in the first extra period. Two weeks later, the Wolverines made the long trip to Hawaii and never looked comfortable. The Warriors played well, coming up with big defensive stops early and scoring enough points to keep a dragging Big Blue on edge. Depth and conditioning saved the day, though, with the run game slowing everything down in the 4th and Michigan held on to win, 28-24. The #10 Wolverines 10-2 record and second in the Big Ten finish had earned them a bid in the Capital One Bowl, where they'll meet Tennessee for the second time in 4 years.
