Michigan Stadium will host ESPN GameDay for first ever night game

ESPN has announced that it will travel to Michigan Stadium on Saturday, September 10th to broadcast it's College GameDay show, which will air live the morning of the Notre Dame-Michigan game, starting at 10 AM ET.

Michigan will also honor former All-American wide receiver, and 1991 Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard, 20 years to the day of his game winning TD catch that beat the Fighting Irish, 24-14, and launched Howard to legendary status.

Howard was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame this summer, and his new book, "I Wore 21: The Legend of Desmond Howard" will be released that day as well.

The Wolverines are 7-2 in ESPN GameDay games at Michigan Stadium, 13-7 overall in games in which GameDay has been on site, the last time being before the 2007 Ohio State-Michigan game in Ann Arbor.

This is going to be the biggest weekend in recent memory involving the Wolverine football team, another example of the continued efforts of Athletic Director Dave Brandon to bring passion and excitement back to college football's All-Time winning est program.
