Michigan to get firsthand look at new American Athletic Conference in 2013

Michigan visits UConn in 2013 -- a team from the new American Athletic Conference. - Jared Wickerham

REMINDER: Michigan will make history again, this time by being one of the first programs to play against a school from the new American Athletic Conference this fall.

With another football season beginning shortly in August, college football fans will see more realignment and conference movement. The new American Athletic Conference, formerly the Big East, was a major player in realignment this past year. And Michigan will face one of its members when it visits Connecticut on Sept. 21 at Rentschler Field. Michigan hosted and beat Connecticut 30-10 in 2010 – one of the few wins former U-M coach Rich Rodriguez won during his tenure in Ann Arbor. While a matchup against a former Big East cupcake is not much to be excited about, the Wolverines are making history, yet again, by playing this game. It will be interesting to see how many M fans on the east coast make the trip to UConn. Michigan also hosts Central Michigan, Notre Dame, and Akron in non-conference action this season. A few other Big Ten programs will play AAC schools this fall: 8/30 Purdue at Cincinnati 9/7 Illinois vs. Cincinnati Michigan State vs. South Florida 9/14 Penn State vs. Central Florida Maryland at Connecticut
