  2021 BIG TEN SMITH-BROWN DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan,...Hutchinson is a finalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, the Senior CLASS Award, and the Lombardi Award presented to the country's top lineman. He is the sixth Wolverine to be named the league's Defensive Player of the Year, joining Devin Bush (2018), Jabrill Peppers (2016), LaMarr Woodley (2006), Larry Foote (2001), and Charles Woodson (1997). Hutchinson is the fifth U-M player to be named Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the year, joining his father, Chris Hutchinson (1992), Woodley (2006), Mark Messner (1988), and Mike Hammerstein (1985). No father-son duo had previously accomplished the feat. - Michigan Football

  2021 BIG TEN NAGURSKI-WOODSON DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan,...Twice voted a team captain, Hutchinson is third among all U-M defenders and first among defensive linemen with 54 tackles this season (32 solo). He has generated a team-leading 14.5 tackles for loss and a program-record 13 sacks (No. 3, NCAA), along with 10 quarterback hurries, three pass breakups, a pair of forced fumbles and one fumble recovered. Hutchinson is graded as the No. 1 defensive player in the country by Pro Football Focus College (93.8). Hutchinson and Ojabo are the first pair in U-M history to both reach double-digit sack totals (10-plus) in the same season. With 13 from Hutchinson and 11 from Ojabo, no pair of teammates in Michigan history, or in the NCAA this season, have matched the duo's 24-sack total. - Michigan Football

  2021 BIG TEN BAKKEN-ANDERSEN KICKER OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Jake Moody, Michigan,...Moody was a first-team pick from the coaches and a third-team selection by the media. He has 22 made field goals this season (of a possible 24), three shy of the single-season record set by Remy Hamilton in 1994. Moody has converted on all 18 of his kicks this season inside 40 yards, and has scored 116 points total (No. 10, NCAA). Moody is four points shy of tying the second-highest single-season scoring total in Michigan history. He has also been a weapon on kickoffs with 58 touchbacks on 88 attempts, leading to the country's No. 1 kickoff return defense unit (12.08 yards, average). Moody is the first Wolverine kicker to be named the Bakken-Andersen Kicker of the Year. He also is one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award, given to college football's top kicker. - Michigan Football

  Michigan moved up to No. 2 Tuesday night in the second-to-last College Football Playoff rankings, joining Georgia, Alabama and Cincinnati in the top four heading into conference championship weekend. Oklahoma State is fifth going into the Big 12 championship game Saturday against No. 9 Baylor, and Notre Dame is sixth with no games left and no head coach. Brian Kelly left the Fighting Irish and was introduced as the new coach at LSU on Tuesday, three days after independent Notre Dame finished its season 11-1. Selection committee chairman Gary Barta, who is Iowa's athletic director, noted selection protocol requires the committee to consider the unavailability of players and coaches and how that could affect a team's performance in the postseason. Losing Kelly had no impact on this week's ranking for Notre Dame because the committee does not project ahead into the postseason until all games are finished. - AP College Football

  NOV 28 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: AIDAN HUTCHINSON, MICHIGAN, Senior, Defensive End, Plymouth, MI/Divine Child,...Aidan Hutchinson recorded seven tackles (5 solo), including three quarterback sacks, and one quarterback hurry as Michigan defeated second-ranked Ohio State, 42-27. Led by Hutchinson, the Wolverines held the Buckeyes to a season-low 64 yards rushing. Notes: Hassan Hawkins and Aidan Hutchinson are the eighth and ninth Michigan players to earn Walter Camp National Defensive Player of Week honors since 2004, and the first since former Wolverine linebacker Chase Winovich (Sept. 23, 2017). - The Walter Camp Football Foundation

  NOV 28 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: HASSAN HASKINS, MICHIGAN, Senior, Running Back, St. Louis, MO/Eureka Senior,...Hassan Haskins rushed for 169 yards (on 28 carries) and tied a Michigan single-game record with five touchdowns as the sixth-ranked Wolverines defeated second-ranked Ohio State 42-27. With the win, Michigan improved to 11-1, and clinched a spot in next weekend's Big Ten championship game.

  Michigan jumped to No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll on Sunday and Oklahoma State joined the top five for the first time since 2015. Georgia was a unanimous No. 1 in the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank for the eighth consecutive week. For the fourth straight week, there is a different No. 2 team behind the Bulldogs. Michigan has its highest ranking since it peaked at No 2. in 2016. The Wolverines moved up four spots after emphatically beating Ohio State on Saturday to break an eight-game losing streak in the rivalry.

Cincinnati moved up to No. 3, flip-flopping with Alabama at No. 4. The Crimson Tide slipped after beating Auburn in overtime. Oklahoma State moved up two spots after beating Oklahoma for the first time since 2014. The Sooners fell three places to No. 13. Notre Dame dropped a spot to No. 6 and Ohio State tumbled five spots to No. 7 a week after it peaked at second last week. The week before the Buckeyes were No. 2, Alabama held that spot. The Tide had replaced Cincinnati the week before. Mississippi, Baylor and Oregon rounded out the top 10. - AP College Football

  11/27/21 - Hassan HaskinsSr/2022, Michigan, 6-0, 220 (DS#1 RB) + More +

  Hassan Haskins scored five touchdowns and Aidan Hutchinson had three sacks, helping No. 6 Michigan finally beat No. 2 Ohio State 42-27 Saturday to give Jim Harbaugh his first win as a coach against the Buckeyes. The Wolverines clinched the Big Ten East and will play in the conference title game next week with playoff hopes in hand. Michigan (11-1, 8-1 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) advanced to the conference championship for the first time. The Wolverines now have a chance to win a Big Ten title for the first time since 2004 and a national championship for the first time since 1997. Minutes after the game, long-suffering fans filled the Big House turf to celebrate a rare win in the storied series and they were in no rush to leave as music blared. Ohio State had won a school-record eight straight in the rivalry and 15 of 16 to turn The Game into its game.

The Buckeyes (10-2, 8-1) blew their chances to continue their dominance with 10 penalties, many before the snap, and because they simply could not stop Michigan's running game. Harbaugh clearly had his team ready to beat the Buckeyes. After Harbaugh's pay was slashed in his new deal last winter in part because of his lack of success against the Buckeyes, he reshaped his coaching staff again and renamed a running-heavy period of practice the “Beat Ohio,” drill for to add another layer of focus on the rivalry. It seemed to work. Haskins had 169 yards rushing on 28 carries, scoring a go-ahead touchdown late in the second half and four more after halftime to pad Michigan's lead. Blake Corum returned from a two-plus game absence to run six times for 87 yards, helping the Wolverines gain a total of 297 yards on a ground against a rival that has pushed them around for much of this century. Harbaugh also seemed to out coach Ryan Day, who had not lost a Big Ten game, by sprinkling in some surprise plays such as a slot-around with A.J. Henning running for a 14-yard run to cap the game-opening 10-play, 75-yard drive. - Houston/AP College Football

  11/20/21 - Cade McNamararSo/2024, Michigan, 6-1, 212 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  By the time the fourth quarter began, it was OK for Cade McNamara and Michigan to look ahead. McNamara threw for two touchdowns, Hassan Haskins ran for two, and the No. 8 Wolverines did their part to raise the stakes of next weekend's showdown with Ohio State, routing Maryland 59-18 on Saturday. Mike Sainristil made a one-handed catch in the end zone for a second-quarter TD, and Donovan Edwards had 10 catches for 170 yards and a touchdown. That all helped make this a relatively stress-free game for the Wolverines - a week before the big one. "I think we're ready," McNamara said. "I mean, it's hard not to think about that team when you're so close, but I'm glad that we came out of this game with a win. We did what we had to do." The Wolverines (10-1, 7-1, No. 6 CFP) host the Buckeyes next week, and the winner will go to the Big Ten title game. Michigan hasn't won the conference since 2004 and hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2011. "We want to win all the marbles," Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said. "We're in the position we want to be in. We've been preparing for this, really the entire year, and now bring that preparation to life this week - play for it all." - Michigan/AP College Football

Also notched his second forced fumble of the season...Is now tied with teammate David Ojabo for the most sacks in the Big Ten this season (10.0). Hutchinson and Ojabo are the first pair of Michigan teammates in program history to record 10-plus sacks in the same season. The duo is the only pair of teammates in the FBS to each record more than 10 sacks in 2021...Becomes one of just four Wolverines to record at least three sacks in a game since 2000 and the first to do so since Josh Uche notched five sacks at Illinois on Oct. 12, 2019...Earns the second Defensive Player of the Week honor of his career and first since Oct. 7, 2019...Last Michigan Defensive Player of the Week: Brad Hawkins (Oct. 11, 2021). - Big Ten Football

  11/13/21 - Erick AllJr/2023, Michigan, 6-4, 245 (DS#8 TE) + More +

  Michigan tight end Erick All woke up on Saturday with a sore ankle, a leftover reminder of the Wolverines' last painful loss. Inside a packed, hostile Beaver Stadium, he was able to block out the discomfort enough to help No. 9 Michigan stay in the Big Ten championship chase with a 21-17 win over No. 23 Penn State. All hauled in a 47-yard touchdown pass from Cade McNamara with 3:29 left and outran Penn State defenders to the end zone. Michigan (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 6 CFP) snapped a two-game skid to the Nittany Lions (6-4, 3-4). "I'm sure he wasn't thinking about that ankle," Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said. "He was thinking about the team." And what another loss would mean for the Wolverines' chance to end their 16-year championship drought.

All was hurt when the Wolverines fell to No. 8 Michigan State on Oct. 30 and didn't play last week in a win over Indiana. He knew the Wolverines needed to stay within reach of the Spartans and No. 6 Ohio State in the Big Ten East. "Adrenaline took care of the rest," All said. Michigan visits Maryland next before hosting the No. 6 Buckeyes on Nov. 27. "It's going to be tough for sure," McNamara said. "That game is going to be so big for us and I know when the moment comes, we'll be ready." McNamara completed 19 of 29 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns and Hassan Haskins ran for 156 yards on 31 carries. Roman Wilson caught a pair of touchdown passes for the Wolverines, who led 14-6 midway through the fourth quarter. - Michigan/AP College Football

  11/07/21 - Hassan HaskinsSr/2022, Michigan, 6-0, 220 (DS#1 RB) + More +

  Hassan Haskins had to carry a heavier burden in the backfield because Blake Corum was injured. He delivered. Haskins ran for a career-high 168 yards and a touchdown, helping No. 9 Michigan bounce back from its first defeat with a 29-7 win over Indiana on Saturday night. "It was a different feeling, but I had to get the job done," Haskins said. The Wolverines (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten) were coming off a deflating defeat, blowing a 16-point, third-quarter lead in a 37-33 loss to rival Michigan State last week. "That's out of our control, but going forward, we said, somebody has to pay and it just happened to be Indiana," Michigan defensive end David Ojabo said. The fifth-ranked Spartans lost for the first time this season earlier in the day, 40-29 to Purdue, and fell into a second-place tie with Michigan behind No. 6 Ohio State in the Big Ten East Division.

The Hoosiers (2-7, 0-6) have lost five straight games, collapsing in a season that started with them hoping to contend for at least a division title. "Our expectations were high in the beginning, and this isn't what we expected," linebacker Micah McFadden said. "So, it hurts." Haskins had 27 carries, matching a career high, without Corum on the field for much of the game. Corum, who has been among the nation's leading rushers all season, ran once for 4 yards and dropped a perfect pass in the flat for the second straight week before leaving the game. "I don't think it's serious," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "I don't know if it's mild. Somewhere less than serious." - Michigan/AP College Football

  10/23/21 - Hassan HaskinsSr/2022, Michigan, 6-0, 220 (DS#1 RB) + More +

  Michigan got off to a sluggish start, perhaps peeking ahead to playing Michigan State. Then the Wolverines used a strong finish to seal a matchup of undefeated rivals. Blake Corum and Hassan Haskins combined for 229 yards rushing and four touchdowns, carrying No. 6 Michigan to a 33-7 win over Northwestern on Saturday. Shortly after the victory, Jim Harbaugh's thoughts had already shifted to facing the ninth-ranked Spartans on the road. "All focus is there," he said. The Wolverines (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) led the Wildcats (3-4, 1-3) by just three at halftime. They pulled away by outscoring them 23-0 in the first 16:40 of the second half. "We played pretty solid in the first half to give ourselves a chance," Northwestern coach Pat Fizgerald said. "And, then we reverted back to some bad habits." Corum finished with 119 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Haskins ran for 110 yards and two scores.

Corum jukes defenders with shifty moves while Haskins runs through them with power. "We both bring different things to the table," Corum said. "We feed off each other." Michigan had 294 yards rushing, nearly 50 yards more than its average. "They're the best rushing offense in the country for a reason," Fitzgerald said. Cade McNamara was 20 of 27 for 129 yards for the Wolverines, whose inability to throw the ball downfield might prove to be a problem against tougher teams. - Michigan/AP College Football
