Michigan’s run in 2021 was one for the ages. After underperforming at times under Jim Harbaugh, the Wolverines finally rolled to a B1G Championship and win over Ohio State on their way to a College Football Playoff appearance.

During B1G Media Days on Tuesday, Michigan starting QB Cade McNamara was asked about his turning point for the season. According to McNamara, he believes the Wolverines started to believe in themselves after the win over Nebraska.

McNamara explained that the road trip to Lincoln was one of the first games in which the team experienced some heavy adversity. He called it “huge” when Michigan came out with a win vs. Nebraska and that it was the first time he thought “this team is different.”

McNamara and the Wolverines turned that belief into a big win over Ohio State and a dominant showing in the B1G Championship. Now, Michigan will try to repeat that performance in 2022.
