The Allstate Sugar Bowl

NEW ORLEANS -- It could have been bittersweet for the Michigan Wolverines at the 2012 Allstate Sugar Bowl, but the victory was sweet for them thanks to a 34-yard field goal from Brendan Gibbons to defeat Virginia Tech by the score of 23-20.

After a troubled start, Denard Robinson found his footing with two touchdown passes to Junior Robinson, who was named the game's Most Outstanding Player. Virginia Tech had two major drives that ended with field goals in the first half, as the Wolverines led the game through most of the game with the score 17-9.

However, Virginia Tech made a fourth quarter comeback for the first time in months with a touchdown and a two-point conversion that tied the game at 17, which was then followed by another tie with a field goal from both teams that put the game into overtime.

It seems like Virginia Tech had the game with a touchdown pass, but officials reviewed it and considered the play out of bounds, and it looks as if they would be four-for-four in field goals, but the kick was no good -- and out of trajectory, giving Brady Hoke his first bowl victory as coach of the Michigan Wolverines: continuing the sports fever throughout the state of Michigan.
