No. 2 Michigan shuts out No. 16 Iowa to punch 3rd straight Playoff ticket

Funnily enough, everyone could have told you what was coming from No. 2 Michigan and No. 16 Iowa in the Big Ten title game.

The Wolverines participated in the Big Ten tradition of overwhelming the Iowa offense in a 26-0 win on Saturday, likely punching their ticket to a third straight College Football Playoff appearance. This year's most controversial college football team will learn their next game when the committee announces the field on Sunday.

The game saw the return of Jim Harbaugh from the Big Ten's three-game suspension for Michigan's sign-stealing scandal, and he ended it by celebrating a third straight conference title.
