Meet the teams
The Michigan Wolverines enter the Fiesta Bowl as the Big Ten champions with a perfect 13-0 record. After some close calls versus Maryland and Illinois, Michigan proved they were the best team in the conference after destroying bitter rival Ohio State 45-23 in Columbus. With an elite defense and stout running game, Michigan is one of the toughest teams in the country in the trenches.
The TCU Horned Frogs are 12-1 and coming off their lone defeat of the season, a 31-28 overtime loss against Kansa State in the Big 12 Championship. Despite the one hiccup, it’s been a magical season for the Horned Frogs under first-year coach Sonny Dykes. For TCU to pull off the upset, quarterback Max Duggan will need to show the world why he was a Heisman trophy finalist and carry the Horned Frogs to victory.
