The biggest play in Super Bowl LII involved two former Wolverines.

Super Bowl LII had pretty much everything you could ask for.

Well, there was one thing it didn’t have until extremely late in the game — a sack.

That’s when former Michigan Wolverine Brandon Graham decided to change things up a bit. With the Philadelphia Eagles up 38-33 on the New England Patriots, former Wolverine and five-time Super-Bowl-winner Tom Brady had a chance to make yet another classic comeback with 2:16 left on the clock.

With the two-minute warning and a timeout remaining for New England, it looked like things were in the favor of the Patriots to mount a comeback. But Graham decided to deny their chances, making the play of his life on 2nd-and-2. Take a look:

The play single-handedly prevented New England from marching down the field, scoring a touchdown and clinching their sixth Super Bowl victory under Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Even Michigan Football’s Twitter account acknowledged Graham as a Super Bowl Champ.

It would’ve been nice to see the GOAT get his sixth Super Bowl ring, but seeing a great guy like Graham nab his first, while making a game-altering play in the process, is also pretty awesome.
