Michigan upsets No. 9 Florida 41-35 to send Carr out a winner

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Lloyd Carr went out a winner.
Chad Henne threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns, Mike Hart
ran for 129 yards and two scores and the Wolverines upset Number 9
Florida 41-35 in the Capital One Bowl to win their first bowl game
since 2003.
This one was special.
Michigan's senior class won its first bowl game in four tries
and Carr ended his coaching career on a high note.
Henne, Adrian Arrington and Mario Manningham torched Florida's
secondary all game. Arrington caught nine passes for 153 yards and
two touchdowns, and Manningham added five catches for 78 yards and
a score.
The Gators kept it close thanks to four turnovers and plenty of
big plays by Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and speedster Percy
Harvin.
Florida failed to convert a fourth-down play at its 25-yard
line, and K.C. Lopata's 41-yard field goal put Michigan ahead 41-35
with 2:21 remaining.
