And this year the Maize and Blue start things off with a bang thanks to scheduling a tilt with #2 Alabama--the defending champs (of oversigning; they also did win the MNC last year, though)--in the "neutral" JerryDome in Texas. Few are expecting the Wolverines to come out on top, but almost all of us see it as a step in the right direction that was a long time coming in terms of scheduling non-"snacky cake"-type non-conference opponents. There's not a lot to lose here: a win means a huge leap forward in the race to a national title; a loss resets expectations a bit toward the other major goal: a Big Ten title. Either way, this promises to be a crazy contest, and no matter what, I can't wait until tonight. GO BLUE!
Game time: 8 p.m. EST
