This game will be the first for the renovated Michigan Stadium, and represents an improvement, however slight, over the MAC and D-1aa fare that would typically occupy such a slot in the schedule.
Michigan's remaining OOC games that year include Notre Dame, UMass, and Bowling Green.
Categorize this into "good not great" territory for yours truly. I'm glad to see a BCS opponent, but wish it could have been somebody with a little more zang, you know? A little more "Holy pants, we get to play LSU!"
Still an improvement.
