It was a big weekend for Michigan sports headlined by the Detroit Lions' dramatic 39-35 season opening win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The post-Calvin Johnson era began with Lions kicker Matt Prater redeeming himself for an earlier missed extra point by hitting the game-winning field goal with four seconds left. 

Elsewhere, Central Michigan University made national headlines with a miraculous Hail Mary touchdown pass in Stillwater, Okla., as they stunned No. 22 Oklahoma State on the final play of the game.

Watch it here:

Shortly after the game was over reports surfaced that the final play should not have been allowed to take place.

Listen to the full interview above to hear about those stories, as well as Michigan's latest blowout win, the Tigers fighting to make the playoffs and the controversy over a pitcher who was taken out of a game while pitching a perfect game.
