PASADENA, Calif. -- A bare-chested Blake Corum stood in front of his locker Monday in the bowels of the Rose Bowl Stadium when a Michigan staffer handed him a ringing cell phone.

"It's your father," he said, handing Corum the phone.

Only minutes earlier, Corum had scored the winning touchdown in overtime on a 17-yard run to beat Alabama 27-20 in the Rose Bowl Game Presented by Prudential, exorcising Michigan's College Football Playoff demons, and more importantly, putting the Wolverines in position to win their first national championship since 1997.
