You can’t make this stuff up.
Michigan captured their first Big10 title since 2004 Saturday night, and punched their ticket to the College Football Playoff with an exclamation point, scoring 42 against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
’42’ was more than just a number of points for the kids in blue and maize.
Michigan wore ‘TM42’ patches during the championship game in honor of Tate Myre, an Oxford High School student who was killed by a school shooter earlier in the week attempting to disarm the gunman in order to save his classmates. Myre wore the number 42 playing high school football for Oxford.
With the junior star running back’s parents in attendance, Michigan just happened to put up his number on the scoreboard.
