WATCH: Jim Harbaugh tries to avoid postgame handshake with Dan Mullen
Things went from bad to worse for the Wolverines in Saturday’s Peach Bowl.
Squaring off against head coach Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators, Michigan headed to the half trailing 13-10. What was a very close game at halftime turned into a blowout after the break.
The Gators outscored the Wolverines 28-5 in the second half to pull away for an easy 41-15 win. Quarterback Shea Patterson threw two interceptions with the second proving to be a clinching pick-six for the Gators.
Following the final whistle, Mullen and Jim Harbaugh walked out to meet each other at midfield. While Mullen and Harbaugh did technically meet at the 50-yard line, there wasn’t an official handshake as Harbaugh quickly headed towards the locker room.
It turned out to be quite an awkward meeting:

In fairness, they also shared an awkward exchange during the Peach Bowl press conference. Maybe awkward is just their thing.
