Fiction: I-A Playoff Results, 12/17/2004

Peach Bowl
The Michigan Wolverines scored the first major upset as they upset the Texas Longhorns, 34-31 in an exciting atmosphere in the sold-out Georgia Dome. Michigan RB Mike Hart was the MVP with 181 yards and 1 TD. QB Chad Henne added TD passes to RB Braylon Edwards and WR Tyler Ecker. Texas jumped out to a 14-0 lead early, but Michigan stormed back with 17 straight points. Texas then kicked a FG to go into the break tied at 17. After Hart's TD to open the second half, Michigan recovered a big fumble by Texas QB Vince Young which set up a FG to make the score 27-17. But Texas wasn't done. RB Cedric Benson broke free for a 46 yard TD run, cutting the deficit to 3. Then, after a Michigan 3-and-out, Texas marched the length of the field, with QB Young sneaking a TD with 2 minutes left, giving the Longhorns a 4 point lead. But then Michigan went to work, mixing the run and pass well. Ecker got the winning TD pass with 10 seconds left to seal Michigan's win.
