It's no surprise that something special is happening inside of the state of Michigan when it comes to football this year. The University of Michigan Wolverines football team was able to complete one of the greatest college football seasons we've ever seen with a dominating victory to be 15-0 and undefeated National Champions. Now, the Detroit Lions are trying to ride that same wave of good energy and bring another championship to Michigan.

So far, there are 3 championships between the two teams as they both won their conferences/divisions and the national championship. The Detroit Lions could make that number become 4 this weekend and possibly 5 in February as they are going for the NFC championship and the Super Bowl. Both of these games would be an uphill battle but nothing the Lions haven't faced before. As they prepare to take on the San Francisco 49ers, most of the country is rooting for them to come out on top.
