Entering the 1985 season expectations were mixed as U-M coming off the frustrating 6-6 season in 1984.   Naturally some wondered if Bo’s best days were behind him—but those thoughts were dashed early in ‘85 after Jimmy Harbaugh, James Walter Morris and a badass defense took down Notre Dame 20-12 in Ann Arbor in the season.  That led to the game featured on This Week in Michigan Football History – a high profile road match-up against #11 South Carolina in Columbia:

As noted, the 1985 defense gave up a mere 98 points the entire season!   WolverineHistorian has the 1985 South Carolina game on YouTube here.
