Homecoming week. Indiana. It was 30 years ago that my heart was forever sealed with Michigan maize and blue.
Michigan was ranked 10th in the country and highly favored to beat Indiana. However Lee Corso‘s Hoosiers were a solid 5-2 and they held a 14-7 halftime lead. After starting quarterback B.J. Dickey got injured the Wolverines ran their way back into the lead with a 50 yard Lawrence Reid touchdown and a Butch Woolfolk two yard plunge. IU had the ball in the final minutes behind 14-21.
Hoosier QB Tim Clifford connected with Nate Lundy for 54 yards before throwing a three-yard touchdownpass to Dave Harangody with 55 seconds remaining. Down by one, Lee Corso decided against going for the win and went for the tie by kicking the extra point. Rather than try to describe what happened next, you just need to watch and listen to Bob Ufer:
