#3 – Appalachian State 34, Michigan 32 (2007) – Sure, Appalachian State had won the past two Division 1-AA National Championships (it later won in 2007 as well), but Michigan was ranked No. 5 (!!) in the nation to open the season.
Michigan’s 7-0 advantage was quickly erased as ASU quarterback Armanti Edwards threw for three touchdowns and ran for one more and the Mountaineers took a 28-17 lead into halftime. Michigan was able to claw back and take a 32-31 lead late in the game, but Edwards completed four straight passes to march ASU down to the Michigan 5 yard-line, where the Mountaineers kicked a field goal and grabbed a 34-32 lead with 27 seconds to go.
Michigan’s offense responded, as Chad Henne hit Mario Manningham for a 46-yard completion that put the Wolverines on ASU’s 20 yard-line with 6 seconds to play.
As they say, the rest is history – check out the ending below.
