Best All-Time Season

1948 – Led head coach Bennie Oosterbaan — who earned All-American honors in both football and basketball as a player — the Wolverines destroyed everyone in their path in 1948. Oosterbaan’s boys pitched five shutouts and held seven of its opponents to seven points or less. More impressively, they beat all four ranked opponents by double digits, including a 13-3 victory over OSU in The Game.

Best Player Of All-Time

Tim Biakabutuka , RB, 1999 – “Touchdown Tim” had a monster season for the Wolverines in 1999. After splitting time with Tyrone Wheatley for two years, Biakabutuka made the most of his opportunity as the full-time starter. He set the school record for rushing yards in a season in 1999, running for 1,818 yards and 12 touchdowns. And, as noted above, he had a monster game against in the season finale, sparking TTUN to an upset over No. 1 Ohio State.
