Description

Under the leadership of head coach Bump Elliott, the 1964 Wolverines won Michigan's first Big Ten championship since 1950 and their first Rose Bowl since 1951, and finished fourth in the national college football polls.

They defeated four top-ten ranked teams: Navy, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Oregon State, their Rose Bowl opponent.

The Wolverines also defeated Minnesota for the first time since 1960, and reclaimed the prized Little Brown Jug. Despite its impressive record, the 1964 team failed to attract the national attention it deserved.

At the beginning of the season, few football observers expected Michigan to contend for the Big Ten championship.

But by the end of the season it was clear that the Wolverines were one of America's elite teams--perhaps the best in the country. This book chronicles for the first time the exploits of Michigan's 1964 team and gives them long-overdue recognition.
