Michigan moves up to 13-0 with the victory. The Wolverines have won 45 Big Ten titles overall and three in a row.

James Turner’s 35-yard field goal gave Michigan the early lead. Turner completed the game 4 for 4, with his longest being a 50-yard field goal.

With 1:07 left in the first quarter, Corum scored his first touchdown on a 2-yard dash into the end zone. Third-quarter scoring began at 9:09 when he added a 6-yard touchdown run. With 55 rushing touchdowns in his career, Corum is tied for the most in Michigan history. The senior gained 52 rushing yards on 16 carries before the end of the game.

The Michigan defense gave up just 155 total yards to Iowa’s offense. Additionally, Iowa made three mistakes. The Big Ten conference’s West division finished 0–10 in the championship game as a result of the Hawkeyes’ defeat.

The past two seasons, Michigan has advanced to the College Football Playoff semifinals. It was defeated 34–11 by Georgia in the Orange Bowl of 2022 and 51–45 by TCU in the Fiesta Bowl of 2023.
