Outside the arena, the players and coaches greeted fans, taking selfies and signing autographs.

“It was a happy locker room, a happy flight back and as I said in the postgame press conference it was a really happy locker room and all our guys were giving thanks to God,” Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh said.

“Just to see how much support we have here in Ann Arbor is just amazing,” defensive end Mike Morris said.
