The kings of the 2023 college football season will be crowned Monday night in Houston, Texas, when No. 1 Michigan clashes with No. 2 Washington in the College Football Playoff National Championship. It's not just a battle of unbeatens but also a battle of future conference foes as the Huskies play their final game as a member of the Pac-12 before joining the Wolverines in the Big Ten next fall. But in the immediate, an elite Michigan defense goes head-to-head with a prolific Washington offense in the Lone Star State as both schools look to end national title droughts extending more than 25 years.


While there have been major postseason matchups between these schools before (Washington beat Michigan in the Rose Bowl when it claimed its most recent title in January 1992), this is the first time either school has participated in what is a defined national championship game. Michigan's most recent championship -- a split title with Nebraska in 1997 -- came in the final season before the BCS was introduced. For the winner of this one, it will truly be a milestone moment as the four-team era of the College Football Playoff reaches its end. It's just the second CFP National Championship without a participant from the Southeastern United States, joining the Ohio State-Oregon title game from the CFP's debuts season in 2014.

Michigan vs. Washington storylines

Michigan: After falling short in CFP semifinal matchups to Georgia and TCU each of the past two seasons, the third time was indeed the charm for Michigan. The Wolverines rallied for an overtime victory against No. 4 Alabama in the Rose Bowl semifinal on New Year's Day, stopping the Crimson Tide on fourth-and-1 to punch their ticket to Houston. Now, Michigan is just four quarters away from college football glory after a season full of twists and turns, including allegations of sign-stealing that resulted in coach Jim Harbaugh being suspended for the team's final three regular-season games.


All season long, a physical brand of football -- "bully ball," as it's been termed -- has kept the Wolverines unblemished. It was on clear display in the Rose Bowl as Michigan's defense overwhelmed Alabama at the line of scrimmage, sacking Crimson Tide quarterback Jalen Milroe five times in the first half alone (six total in the win). On offense, running back Blake Corum also made his presence felt after missing last year's CFP due to injury, scoring two touchdowns in the victory against Alabama including the go-ahead score in overtime. Michigan will look to maintain a tough and rugged approach Monday as it goes up against an offense-first Washington squad that relies on a far more finesse style of football.


Washington: Offense, offense, offense. If nothing else, that's what you need to know about the Huskies, who boast some of the most dangerous players in the game on that side of the football. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has dazzled all season in guiding a lethal passing attack, one that includes top-tier targets among the likes of Rome Odunze, Ja'Lynn Polk and Jalen McMillan on the receiving end. After finishing as the Heisman Trophy runner-up, Penix put on a show against Texas in the Sugar Bowl semifinal, passing for 430 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-31 Huskies victory. It's brought his season totals to 4,648 yards and 35 touchdowns passing.


What has allowed Penix to have that success? Washington's offensive line deserves praise for doing its part and then some in protecting Penix, winning the Joe Moore Award as the nation's best. The passing game has also been complimented by a breakout season from Mississippi State transfer running back Dillon Johnson, who is expected to play Monday despite reaggravating a lower-body injury against Texas. Add it all up, and Washington -- a team that ranks a mere 26th in the 247Sports Team Talent Composite and was just 5-7 two years ago -- could soon emerge the king of the sport in coach Kalen DeBoer's second season. What a send-off it would be for the Pac-12 before the "Conference of Champions" as we know it rides off into the sunset.

How to watch No. 1 Michigan vs. No. 2 Washington in the 2024 College Football Playoff National Championship


It's time to crown a national champion as No. 1 Michigan and No. 2 Washington go head-to-head in the College Football Playoff National Championship from NRG Stadium in Houston. This title game feels a little different as neither of these programs have won a national championship during the BCS/CFP era. Michigan's last title was earned in 1997, while Washington took home all the marbles back in 1991.


Michigan and Washington have also taken entirely different approaches to Monday's seismic clash. The Wolverines are in their ninth year under coach Jim Harbaugh, with this being their third straight College Football Playoff appearance. Michigan failed to make it out of the semifinals in each of its first two years, losing by a combined score of 85-56.


Washington's ascension under coach Kalen DeBoer feels almost immediate by comparison. He led the Huskies to 11 wins in 2022 -- his first year with the program -- and guided them to their first undefeated regular season since 1991 and a Pac-12 championship to secure a playoff return. The Huskies made it previously under former coach Chris Petersen in 2016.


This is also a rare national title matchup in that both teams rank outside the top 10 of the 247Sports Team Talent Composite. Michigan sits at 14th, while Washington is 12 spots behind at 26th -- a testament to the ability of both staffs to identify and develop talent both through high school and transfer portal recruiting.

Michigan vs. Washington storylines

Michigan: It's taken Michigan a while to build to this point, and the Wolverines have taken their fair share of lumps along the way. Harbaugh's squad couldn't even break through in its own conference consistently until 2021 when a big win against Ohio State got the ball rolling on its current run. That sent UM to its first of three straight Big Ten titles with College Football Playoff appearances following each. Even then, the Wolverines couldn't climb to the tippy-top of the mountain. They were blown out by Georgia in 2021 and lost to TCU last year in what stands as the largest upset in CFP history.


Then, with the program continuing its steady march, it looked as if the wheels might fall off this season. Michigan self-imposed a three-game suspension for Harbaugh in an attempt to soften the blow from an NCAA investigation into recruiting violations committed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then, shortly after Harbaugh returned, news broke of an alleged sign-stealing and advanced scouting scheme run by a now former staffer, causing the Big Ten to crack down on Michigan and suspend Harbaugh through the final three games of the year. Through it all, the Wolverines stayed together, which is a testament to the team culture that's steadily grown through the years. That culture now might lead Michigan to its first national championship since 1997.


Washington: People will throw the word "physicality" around a lot in the days leading up to Monday's clash, and a lot of the focus will be on Michigan and its punishing style of football. The Wolverines play in the Big Ten, where teams still employ a fullback and run the ball from the I-formation. While Washington's newfangled offense is filled with glitz and glamour, the Huskies have what it takes to get down in the trenches. It starts with a Joe Moore Award-winning offensive line. UW allowed just 11 sacks all year, which amounts to less than one per game. For those that still believe Pac-12 competition is dubious for whatever reason, Washington just held a Texas defensive line that boasts a pair of potential first-round NFL Draft picks in Byron Murphy and T'Vondre Sweat without a single sack or quarterback hurry.


By comparison, Washington's defensive front pushed Texas around with two sacks, five tackles for loss and three quarterback hurries. Huskies EDGE Bralen Trice is arguably the most talented pass rusher in Monday's game. He has 16 sacks over the past two years and has earned back-to-back All-Pac 12 first-team honors as a result. Behind him, run-stuffing linebacker Edefuan Ulofoshio was named a Butkus Award finalist after a season in which he logged 90 total tackles, eight for a loss, and three sacks. There's plenty of evidence to suggest that Washington can more than hold its own at the point of attack, though prevailing narratives might suggest otherwise.


Michigan vs. Washington prediction, pick

Washington has one very significant edge in this game, and his name is Michael Penix Jr. While Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy has a bright future with plenty of potential, Penix is as close is it comes to a finished product. He can make throws at all levels of the field, and he might be a better tight-window passer than any of his peers. Penix has a much better supporting cast with wideouts Rome Odunze -- a CBS Sports All-American -- Jalen McMillan and Ja'Lynn Polk, breakout running back Dillon Johnson and reliable tight end Jack Westover. The Huskies are also talented enough to make stops on defense and pull this one out, though it should be tight. Pick: Washington +4.5 | Washington 35, Michigan 31
