Pro Football Focus hands out Orange Bowl grades between Michigan-Florida State

fsumich

The people at Pro Football Focus grade every single game in college football, and of course, last night’s Orange Bowl between Michigan and Florida State was no different.

The Wolverines finished on the wrong side of what was a very dramatic 33-32 win by Florida State and the team finishes with a 10-3 record for the season. Despite its three losses, Michigan was surely never blown out.

In those three blemishes on its record, the Wolverines lost those games by a combined five points.
