No. 2 Michigan has reached the College Football Playoff in large part to its stout offensive line, so it’s only fitting the group receives some national recognition.

The Wolverines’ offensive line has been named as one of four finalists along with Air Force, Kentucky, and Oregon State for the Joe Moore Award:

The winner of the annual group award will be announced in late December. Michigan averages 37.8 points and 451.9 yards per game to rank 18th nationally in total offense.

The Joe Moore Award is not the only group to take notice of the o-line. Following the win over Ohio State, head coach Jim Harbaugh said legendary NFL coach John Madden contacted him with high praise for the unit.

The Wolverines are 12-1 overall and captured the B1G title with a 42-3 rout vs. Iowa. Michigan will face No. 3 Georgia on Dec. 31 for a College Football Playoff semifinal matchup at the Capital One Orange Bowl.
