As expected, ESPN College GameDay confirmed Sunday that it will be in Ann Arbor for Saturday’s game against Notre Dame. It had to be a pretty easy choice, considering the two programs, the fact both teams are wearing special uniforms and, most importantly, it marks the first night game in Michigan Stadium history. The Big House added lights during the offseason, and they debuted for The Big Chill, last year’s hockey game between Michigan and Michigan State. Here’s a Twitpic of the lights.
As you can see, there aren’t a lot lights. But, as the Michigan SIDs said during our BTN Football Tour: “They are really bright!” Either way, it will be really neat to see Michigan Stadium at night, for a change. And you can bet it will be a crazy atmosphere, made even crazier due to ESPN’s all-day presence.
