U-M vs MSU game on 10-7-06 has 4:30 p.m. kickoff
Kickoff for the Michigan-Michigan State game on October 7, 2006 has been set for 4:30 p.m. Mark your calendars!!! The game will be broadcast on ESPN. As noted in the Detroit Free Press article regarding the start time, sunset in A2 on gameday will be at 7:07 p.m. That means much of the second half [and any overtime(s)] will be played under the portable lights. Remember that the last two meetings between these teams have gone into OT including, of course, the triple-OT classic U-M won at home in 2004. Also, if you are attending the game, please remember to dress in layers. I can't tell you how many people I heard say during the '04 game that they were "freezing" and that they just wanted the game to end. Afternoon sun=warmth. Sun goes down=cooler weather. We did go to U-M people. Try and act like it.
