They defeated four top-ten ranked teams: Navy, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Oregon State, their Rose Bowl opponent. The Wolverines also defeated Minnesota for the first time since 1960, and reclaimed the prized Little Brown Jug. Despite its impressive record, the 1964 team failed to attract the national attention it deserved. At the beginning of the season, few football observers expected Michigan to contend for the Big Ten championship. But by the end of the season it was clear that the Wolverines were one of Americas elite teams--perhaps the best in the country.

This book chronicles for the first time the exploits of Michigans 1964 team and gives them long-overdue recognition. The research draws on primary sources from the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan, The Ohio State University Archives, the Archives of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, newspaper sources, oral histories, and interviews with former Michigan players and coaches, as well as interviews with opposing players.
