Michigan will host Air Force at noon on Sept. 16, MSU game likely at night

Chances are, MSU game will be at night now with Air Force being a noon kickoff.

NCAA Football: Michigan State at Michigan Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

It was announced today that the Air Force game on September 16 will be at noon and televised on Big Ten Network. This is the third matchup against them with the last two being wins in 1964 (24-7) and 2012 (31-25).

Since the Big Ten can only assign night games to a school in September and October, and all other home games during those months have been released, the chances of the MSU-Michigan rivalry game happening at night are looking very likely. Even though U-M Athletic Director Warde Manuel has indicated the possibility of having two night games recently, that seems less of a possibility with only Michigan State and Minnesota the remaining home games with kickoff times not announced yet.
