This game was suppose to be a blow out. They said Michigan was to slow. They were proven to be dead wrong. This could have been a couple of different players, but I decided on one.
I chose Chad Henne's performance against Florida in the Capitol One Bowl. Henne was 25-39 for 373 yards and three touchdowns. The Wolverines received the opening kick off, and took the opening drive 93 yards in 12 plays for a TD.
The TD was a 21 yard bomb from Henne to Manningham. It took the score to 7-0. Henne was 6-6 with 43 yards on that drive. The score was 14-14 with 9:51 left in the half. Even though Michigan didn't score on the drive, Henne hit Carson Butler for a 65-yard pass off of a screen. Michigan went up 21-14 before the half ended. Henne hit Adrian Arrington for a one yard TD in the right corner of the endzone.
Henne was 3-6 for 46 yards during the drive. Michigan went up 28-14 in the third quarter due to a 20 yard slant pass from Henne to Arrington on 3rd-and-10. The game was tied 28-28 in the third. Florida ended up taking a 35-31 lead with 5:49 left in the fourth quarter. The Wolverines took over at there own 33 yard line.
In one play the were at Florida's 24 yard line, thanks to a 37 yard completion from Henne to Arrington (the one handed catch). Henne then tossed an 18-yard pass to Arrington for a TD, and a 38-35 lead. Michigan ended up kicking a field goal, and winning the game 41-35.
This game was probably the best game of Henne's career. It showed that he could be consistent and hit receivers. Henne was the biggest factor in this win.
