UofM vs. UT

No way. I just saw this article and thought I would pass it along. I doubt UT will put up much of a fight, but I'm stoked for two home teams :)

U-M Adds Home Game With Toledo to 2008 Schedule

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department announced today (Tuesday, May 22) that the University of Toledo will fill of one of the open dates for the 2008 football season. The Wolverine and Rockets reached a single-game agreement to play during U-M's open week of the Big Ten schedule, Oct. 11, 2008, at Michigan Stadium.

"Toledo athletic director Mike O'Brien and I talked at a recent gathering of athletic directors in Phoenix about the prospect of playing a football game, and today we are pleased to have reached a one-game agreement," said U-M director of athletics Bill Martin. "We look forward to hosting Toledo next year and hope to have our final opening for 2008 filled by the fall."

This will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools separated by just 50 miles. U-M has compiled a 22-0 record all-time against eight different Mid-American Conference schools, with all 22 previous match-ups coming at Michigan Stadium.

The Wolverines could schedule the 12th game on either Aug. 30 or Sept. 20 next season.
