Pat Caputo: Michigan’s Victory Over Nebraska Signature Win For Surprisingly Quickly Rising Wolverines

There was little question, even before Saturday, Michigan had made significant progress in Brady Hoke’s first season as head football coach.

What was missing from the Wolverines’ resume was a signature victory in the Big Ten.

Not Purdue or Illinois or Minnesota or Northwestern. But a win over one of the conference’s big boys.

Michigan reeled in a big fish Saturday, routing Nebraska at Michigan Stadium, 45-17.

Now the Wolverines, 9-2 overall, are looking at a potential 10-win season that could border on special, given the circumstances of the football program entering 2011, if they beat Ohio State this coming Saturday.
