Michigan vs. Iowa final score, results from 2021 Big Ten championship game: Hassan Haskins, Blake Corum lead Michigan to first Big Ten title since 2004

It took seven years, but Jim Harbaugh has led his alma mater back to national prominence, this time for all the right reasons. The Wolverines thoroughly routed Iowa 42-3 in the 2021 Big Ten title game to earn a berth in the College Football Playoff and capture the program’s first conference title since 2004.

Michigan got off to a hot start, jumping out to a 14-0 lead after a 67-yard touchdown run by Blake Corum and a 75-yard flea flicker. They were held in check in the first half, taking a 14-3 lead to the locker room at halftime.

But then the Wolverines came alive and the Hawkeyes sputtered in the second half, with Michigan scoring 28 unanswered points. The Wolverines just overpowered Iowa, outgaining them 461-279 while averaging 7.4 yards per play and registering 21 first downs.

Michigan scored touchdowns on four of its final five drives, while Iowa punted on seven of its last nine drives. The Wolverines also opted for a by committee approach in both the run game and the pass game, using eight different rushers and 10 different receivers. No single rusher or receiver eclipsed 100 yards.

And while Michigan’s usually stout defense kept Iowa off the field, it didn’t put up the gaudy numbers it has in recent weeks. The Wolverines registered just one sack and just four tackles for loss.

Michigan will now almost assuredly make the College Football Playoff, it’s just a matter of what seed the Wolverines come in at in the top-4 following No. 1 Georgia’s loss to Alabama in the SEC title game.
