Jim Harbaugh may have put it better in his post-game interview. Asked about the importance of Michigan scoring 42 points in the B1G Championship game, the head coach said, “God works in mysterious ways.”

Michigan paid tribute to Oxford high school student Tate Myre on Saturday night, one of four victims killed in the school shooting on Tuesday. Myre was shot while trying to disarm the shooter.

For the game, Michigan wore badges that read “TM 42,” honoring Myre’s high school jersey number. Myre’s parents and high school coaches were also invited to the game as honorary captains.

And the night Michigan honored No.42, the Wolverines scored 42 points on the scoreboard. Harbaugh says importance has not been lost on him or anyone else on the team.

“Tate was a warrior,” Harbaugh said after the game. “The best athlete in the school could have been the first to come out. … He’s a hero.

The B1G paid tribute to the 4 victims of the Oxford High School shooting, observing a minute of silence before kick-off.
