Jim Harbaugh seems very happy that Paul Bunyan is heading home with the Wolverines.

For those unaware, Michigan and Michigan State play their annual rivalry game for what's called the Paul Bunyan Trophy - which is really one of the weirder pieces of hardware. Regardless, it looks like Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh is thrilled to be bringing is back to Ann Arbor with him.

Harbaugh took to Twitter minutes ago, joking that Bunyan's face now has a "smile" on it after the win. Senior Eric Magnuson apparently went with a more serious look.

The win was Michigan's first over Michigan State since 2012.
