In case you are still wondering why 1994, let’s go over a quick history lesson.
On Sept. 24, 1994, No. 7 Colorado defeated No. 4 Michigan after pulling off one of the most memorable plays in college football history.
Despite trailing by 12 points heading into the fourth quarter, Colorado did not give up. In fact, the Buffaloes scored twice in the final 2:16, including a Hail Mary that Wolverine fans would love to erase from their memory.
Trailing 26-21 with six seconds left in the game, quarterback Kordell Stewart and the Colorado offense lined up at their own 36 yard line. Stewart took the snap, dropped back, and then let a pass fly from the 27 yard line which seemed to stay in the air forever before being deflected and into the arms of a diving Michael Wesbrook in the end zone for the game-winning touchdown.
Sorry, Wolverine Nation, but here is the play.
