Michigan reveals victory tag for 2021 win over Ohio State
Members of Michigan football’s 142nd team now have something to commemorate the 2021 victory over Ohio State inside the Big House last November.
As if a B1G title and a trip to the College Football Playoff weren’t enough, Michigan has also received a special tag for last year’s 42-27 victory over Ohio State in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines’ Twitter account shared images of the special tag on social media.
Last year’s win over the Buckeyes was the first for Michigan under Jim Harbaugh and the program’s first since the 2011 season. That victory secured Michigan’s spot in the B1G Championship Game the following weekend in Indianapolis.

After the win over Ohio State, Michigan clobbered Iowa in the B1G Championship Game to clinch a berth in the College Football Playoff. The Wolverines fell to Georgia, closing the season at 12-2.
“It was a great season,” Harbaugh said after a loss to UGA. “To me, it’s one of the best seasons in Michigan football history. We were trying to make it greater tonight, but it was still a great season. This team won’t be fully together next year. It’s still a beginning for this team. This is when it began last year, and it will begin anew this year. Start of a new year. Proud of them, the way they kept fighting. Ton of resolve with this football team. To me, it feels like a start. It feels like a beginning.”
Michigan opens the 2022 season against Colorado State on Saturday, Sept. 3 in Ann Arbor.
