NEW ORLEANS, La. -- Junior/sophomore Brendan Gibbons (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman) kicked a 37-yard field goal in the first overtime session to give the University of Michigan football team (No. 13 AP/No. 12 USA Today Coaches) a 23-20 win over Virginia Tech (No. 17 AP/No. 11 USA Today) on Tuesday (Jan. 3) in the 78th annual Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Junior Hemingway was named MVP.  It was a fun, exciting game, with a little bit of everything - turnovers, penalties, even some hipper-dipper.  I loved it.  Tom was texting from China!  It was fun to find out that the CEO of Allstate is an alumnus - who knew?  (It was the Allstate Sugar Bowl)
