Unsurprisingly, there was plenty to talk about during Michigan’s Rose Bowl victory over Alabama in the College Football Playoff. Here are some of the best reactions from social media to the game and Michigan’s performance.

After struggling on its opening drive, the offense gets going for a 75-yard drive, capped by a Blake Corum receiving touchdown.

Michigan’s pass rush is absolutely taking over in the second quarter, getting after Jalen Milroe to complicate things for Alabama’s offense.

Sherrone Moore dips into the bag of tricks and J.J. McCarthy completes a crazy throw to Roman Wilson for a big gain.

A few plays later, Tyler Morris catches a J.J. McCarthy pass and takes it to the house for his first career touchdown.

The Wolverines had the lead at the half, and the pass rush was a big reason why, keeping Alabama’s offense out of sync early.

Despite being in California, the spirit of the Big House travels well, as fans sing “Mr. Brightside” during an otherwise uneventful third quarter.

It hasn’t gone Michigan’s way in the second half, as the offense has looked off-schedule and Alabama’s offense has started to find its groove.

The Michigan offense finally gets rolling late in the fourth, and the Wolverines are able to knot it up at 20.

Blake Corum kicks off overtime with an angry touchdown run to give Michigan another lead.

The defense stands tall in overtime and stones Jalen Milroe at the goal line, sending the Wolverines to the National Championship!
