Report: Jim Harbaugh Made Bold Move Prior To Big Ten Championship Game

The No. 2 Michigan Wolverines were extremely confident heading into Saturday, according to report from ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski.

If the Michigan Wolverines were feeling confident heading into Saturday's contest with Iowa, they certainly had every reason to be. A little over a week ago, the Wolverines bullied the No. 2 Buckeyes in Ann Arbor by a final score of 42-27 - snapping an eight-game losing streak to their most hated rival.

Not only did the win over Ohio State give Jim Harbaugh his first victory over the Buckeyes in six attempts, it also propelled the Wolverines into the Big Ten Championship game.
