UM's Higdon on Ohio State loss last year: I think everyone knows we definitely won that game
Missed calls, a bad spot and a controversial ending resulted in one of the most hotly-debated and memorable games in the longtime history of Ohio State and Michigan. Even a year later, the Wolverines are still bitter about the outcome.
Running back Karan Higdon is one of those players still fuming over the loss.
On Monday, Higdon met with the media to talk about the upcoming game against the Buckeyes, and how Michigan is searching for revenge after last year’s devastating loss. But the running back still doesn’t think the Maize and Blue were on the losing side of that contest.
“I think everyone knows we definitely won that game,” Higdon said, according to Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News.

Yeah, rivalry week has officially started.
Michigan blew a 17-7 lead in the second half against the Buckeyes in Columbus last season. But, as you’ll remember, a controversial spot that could’ve ended the game worked in Ohio State’s favor and the Scarlet and Gray went on to win in overtime.
The officiating, which was pretty controversial, fueled this rant by Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh:
Ohio State has won the last five games in the series and 12 of the last 13 match-ups. Urban Meyer is a perfect 5-0 in “The Game” while Harbaugh is 0-2.
Saturday’s game is set for noon ET and will air on FOX.
