FOX caught a devastated young Michigan fan on camera after Wisconsin's punt return touchdown, and he is apparently a very notable one.

Wisconsin and Michigan are currently playing in what is perhaps the biggest game of the day, with the Badgers' College Football Playoff and Michigan's outside Big Ten East hopes on the line.

The Badgers opened scoring with a 50-yard punt return touchdown by Nick Nelson to go up 7-0 late in the first quarter.

After the play, cameras panned to a crying young Michigan fan. It is unclear whether FOX employees were aware, but people are pretty sure it is Harbaugh's son Jack sitting next to his wife Sarah.

Michigan beat writer Kyle Rowland and Barstool Sports' Dan Katz, who has interviewed Harbaugh multiple times for his podcast "Pardon My Take," both tweeted that it is, in fact, the young Harbaugh.

It's not the first time that a crying fan has turned out to be the son of a large figure. During the NCAA Tournament, a young Northwestern fan that went viral turned out to be the son of athletic director Jim Phillips.

You certainly can't question young Jack Harbaugh's Michigan fandom, even at an early age.
