Michigan running back Blake Corum, right, and quarterback J.J. McCarthy celebrate a touchdown against Iowa during the first half of the Big Ten championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Saturday.

INDIANAPOLIS – It looks daunting. Any time you draw an SEC blueblood in a postseason clash, the odds and history start stacking up.

In many ways, Michigan announced its return to the college football elite by beating Ohio State and destroying Iowa in the Big Ten Championship Game. It’s a compelling story of redemption, as Jim Harbaugh took his team farther than he ever has, farther than anyone expected this season. The mark has been made, no matter what happens next.
