Recalling one of the more surprising moments in the Notre Dame - Michigan rivalry

"The Yeti goes in!" shouts Michigan coach Bo Schembechler in a surprise move late in 1976's classic against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.  Down two touchdowns late in the game, the Wolverines lined up with an actual Yeti in the backfield, who would amass 25 yards in penalties before having to be tranquilized and removed from the stadium.  The Irish would cruise to victory in what would later be coined the Yetibowl.
