Actually it was the coaching staff that 'revolted' after the *ichigan game.  Woody had refused to throw in the second half of the tie game, due to a sore thumb that Cornelius  Greene had from the previous week vs Iowa.  He was relying on a phenomenal defense and Archie to keep U* at bay.  The staff demanded that they be allowed to call the game that they planned against USC or they wouldn't go.  Woody relented and the result was an offensive outburst vs a very good Trojan team.  Corny's first or second pass of the game was intercepted and Woody almost took over, but he refrained and the passing attack was something like 6-8 for the day and loosened up the Trojans enough for Archie, Corny and Pete Johnson to have outstanding performances.  Archie's 4th quarter run was a thing of beauty.  The defense did give up 21 points, the most they gave up all year, but completely shut down the Trojans in the later 3rd and 4th quarter.
