In the biggest contest of their season, the Michigan Wolverines came out flat against TCU, as the Horned Frogs secured a dramatic 51-45 win in the 2022 Fiesta Bowl to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff national title game.

TCU opened up the scoring in the early stages of the first quarter via a 41-yard pick-six from Bud Clark, and the Big 12 side did not look back from there. TCU never once trailed in the matchup, as the Horned Frogs scored an astounding seven total touchdowns against the reigning Big Ten champions.

For Michigan, miscues on offense coupled with the forgettable performance from its rush defense marred its showing on the day. The Wolverines turned the ball over three times and allowed 488 total yards to the Max Duggan-led TCU offense.

The postseason woes for Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh have continued.
