It's game day! As has been widely published in the last 48 hours, true freshman Tate Forcier will get the start at quarterback. Forcier will be only the third true freshman to start a season opener at quarterback for Michigan in the program's 130-year history. (Note: The others were Rick Leach in 1975 and Chad Henne in 2004).
The Alumni Honorary Captains (.pdf) for today's game are OL Joe O'Donnell (1960-1963), LB Erick Anderson (1988-1991) and WR Mercury Hayes (1992-1995).
Kickoff is not until 3:36 p.m. today. Need something to read while you are tailgating? Try the 26-pages of Game Notes (.pdf) which can be found here.
