In Lloyd Carr's final game as Head Coach, the Michigan Wolverines delivered an emotional 41-35 win over Florida in the Capital One Bowl on New Years Day.

Florida's Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin provided the biggest challenge for the Wolverine defense, with Tebow throwing for 154 yards, and Harvin racking up 165 yards rushing and a touchdown. Michigan's defense was determined though; holding the Heisman trophy winner to only 4 yards in Florida's final two possessions and overcoming offensive mistakes in order to seal the victory.

This game was special, and the team played their hearts out. Wide receiver Adrian Arrington said "We definitely wanted to do this for Coach Carr. We wanted to have his legacy end the right way. He kept on telling us, do it for the team and we kept telling him -- no we're doing it for you."
