Michigan is appearing its first Big Ten Championship Game since the conference switched to the two-division alignment in 2011. Michigan has earned its first 11-win season under head coach Jim Harbaugh, who also reached 60 career wins leading the program.
Michigan's offense is directed by third-year offensive coordinator Josh Gattis, who was recognized last week as one of 15 semifinalists for the Broyles Award given to the top assistant coach in college football, and first-year co-offensive coordinator/run game coordinator Sherrone Moore, who also leads the offensive line.
