The greatest upset ever. If "David vs. Goliath" were to be personified in a college football sense, Appalachian State vs. Michigan fits the mold perfectly.
Michigan was supposed to contend for a National Championship. With Chad Henne, Mike Hart and Jake Long, this was one of the elite teams in the nation.
No one expected what would transpire in the Big House.
Armanti Edwards led Appalachian State's offense to a 28-14 lead in the second quarter, being apart of all four touchdowns on the board for his team.
The second half would turn out to be a very close defensive battle, where the Wolverines seemingly took the lead, after Mike Hart scored on an improbable 58 yard touchdown.
With 4:36 remaining and down by one point, Edwards engineered one more huge drive, putting the Mountaineers in field goal range without any timeouts. Kicker Julian Rauch converted a 26 yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining, stunning the sold out crowd.
Michigan mounted one last attempt to win the game, with Chad Henne hooking up with Mario Mannigham for a 46 yard reception. Michigan was now on the 20 yard line and needed a field goal for the win.
However, the kick was blocked and Appalachian State ran the clock out by returning the kick to the 5-yard line.
When all was said and done, the Mountaineers prevailed, 34-32. Michigan was knocked out of the Top 25 after their defeat.
