On Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines made the 2022 season a rarefied 10-0 start with a 34-3 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. It’s Michigan’s first 10-0 start to a season since 2006.
While a win is never a bad thing, the game was a bit of a slog, and it showed on social media. Even still, here are some of the best reactions:

Good thing they roll over to the next half, right? ...right?

A lot of people were definitely sleep-watching this game:
