Here’s the next entry in ‘This Week in Michigan Football History’ to be played Saturday on WTKA 1050AM’s Key Bank Countdown to Kick-off pregame show before the battle against the Iowa.

This time we head back, not too far, to 1993 and feature the first ever match-up between Michigan and Penn State.   It was the 1000th game in Nittany Lion history and ABC sent their A team of announcers, Keith Jackson and Bob Griese, to call the game to the national audience.

The signature moment of the game was the goal line stand that Michigan put up that spanned the end of the third quarter, and the first play of the fourth.  The great WolverineHistorian captured the set of downs here:

Paced by that stand, a punt return by Derrick Alexander–no one touched him or even stepped on DA’s shoes! [inside joke]—the running of Tyrone Wheatley, and a late beautifully executed pass from Todd Collins to fullback Che’ Foster, Michigan won 21-13.

Here’s the This Week…segment for this week, include production drops of Mr. Keith Jackson:
