The Michigan football team played one night game all of last regular season. The Wolverines have already played at night twice, and now a third time is on the horizon.
It was announced today the matchup between Michigan and Minnesota on Nov. 4 at The Big House is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. EST. The game will be aired on FOX.
Schedule Note: The Nov. 4 home game against Minnesota will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast by FOX. #GoBlue— Michigan Football (@UMichFootball) October 23, 2017
One can imagine why in the world FOX picked up this game for its prime time game. There’s one reason and one reason only: Jim Harbaugh vs. P.J. Fleck. These two coaches are both intense and love the game. With the way things have been going this year for both teams, this should be a pretty interesting game to say the least.
The Wolverines are 0-2 in night games this season, losing at home to Michigan State and on the road last weekend to Penn State. Minnesota is 0-1 in night games this season, losing at home to Michigan State two weeks ago.
Michigan last played Minnesota in 2015, winning on the road in nail-biting fashion thanks to a goal line stand by the U-M defense on Minnesota’s final drive.
