There are 112 Days to Michigan Football

Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.

Today's obscure fact comes courtesy of team 112. Despite a questionable loss to Michigan State midseason (another on the list of "Games I Don't Talk About"), Michigan tied for the conference title and made it to the Gator Bowl. In that game, running back Ricky Powers had 112 yards.

Michigan beat Mississippi 35-3 due to 4 passing touchdowns by Elvis Grbac (still number three on Michigan's all-time list for TD's).
