Happy New Year, and welcome in to the final game thread for the 2019 season! This season has absolutely flown by, so let’s cherish these last hours of Michigan football while we can before the offseason begins.
If you need to catch up on our coverage before kickoff, here’s your pregame reading:
- Behind Enemy Lines Q&A with Roll Bama Roll
- Looking at the history between Michigan and Alabama
- Matchup of the Week: Slowing down Alabama’s WRs
- Getting to know Michigan’s bowl game opponent: Alabama Crimson Tide
Now that you’re all caught up, let’s get to the facts of today’s game.
Teams: No. 14 Michigan Wolverines (9-3) vs. No. 13 Alabama (10-2)
Date: Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020
Location: Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fl.
Kickoff: 1 p.m.
Radio: Michigan/IMG Sports Network (for a list of affiliates, click here)
Spread: Alabama -7; O/U: 58
Today’s question: How much playing time will the backup quarterbacks — Joe Milton and Dylan McCaffrey — get? One of those guys will be the starter next season, so getting a chance to play against a top opponent like Alabama might benefit those guys if there’s a situation to get in there.
Enjoy the game! It’s the last one for the 2019 season, so take it all in while you can. After today, we have to wait a whole eight freakin’ months for more Michigan football. Ugh.
