You can exhale, Michigan football fans. 

Sure, the Wolverines' 24-21 double-overtime victory against Army was ugly. And, sure, you've got more questions about Josh Gattis' "Speed in Space" offense than you had entering the season. 

But a win's a win. 

And in the big-money world of college football, it's better to pay a school $1.5 million and beat it than to pay a school $1.5 million and get beat.

That's exactly how much Michigan paid Army to play Saturday's game in Ann Arbor, according to sports business analyst Darren Rovell.

Army, who is being paid $1.5 million for today’s game at the Big House, is beating Michigan 14-7 at the half.

Michigan trailed Army 14-7 at halftime, fumbled four times, rallied in the second half and avoided becoming the second Power 5 program this season to spend big and get beat. (In Week 1, Tennessee lost to Georgia State after a $950,000 payout.)

Even with a win, that's a lot of money to scare the hell of Michigan fans. 

And, boy, were they scared. 

Army struggled to put away Rice in Week 1, but on Saturday the Black Knights looked more than capable of beating the preseason favorite in the Big Ten.
