Michigan football team’s historic win over Rutgers University Saturday  means one steakhouse owes a lot of hungry fans some serious meat.

On Friday, Ruth's Chris Steak House in Ann Arbor announced on its Facebook page that for the remainder of the season customers would receive a percentage off their total food bill equal to the final winning point differential in the latest University of Michigan football game.

Then came Michigan's 78-0 monster win over Rutgers on Saturday-- its largest margin of victory since an 85-0 win in 1939 over the University of Chicago.

Steak lovers rejoiced.

As of Sunday afternoon, the Ruth's Chris announced that it was already booked through Thursday-- the day the promotion expires. But the steakhouse won’t stop offering the deal and will run the promotion until the end of college football season.

The Facebook posting capped the total discount at 50 percent so fans won’t be able to get nearly 80 percent off their filets and ribeyes. The offer does not include alcohol, either.
