Army Sgt. Nathan Tuttle's team lost Saturday at Michigan Stadium, but what happened in the football game doesn't matter most to him.

The Michigan couple, both country music fans, caught an Eric Church concert last April.

The real action took place when he clinched a critical play in the second quarter, as WDIV tells in a brief item:

He went down on one knee in the end zone in front of his girlfriend and 110,000 fans to propose. You know what happened next.

Tuttle, a 29-year-old missile systems specialist on leave from a base in Romania, has been dating Emily Palm for three years. She thought he was still overseas until a surprise visit for UM's second game of the season. When not deployed, the sergeant is stationed at Fort Hood in Texas.

The Wolverines won 24-21 in double overtime, not that these two lovebirds cared much. See a 22-second video of their on-field drama here.
