Two Additional U-M Football Kickoff Times Announced
ANN ARBOR – The University of Michigan Athletic Department in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference and its television partners announced the kickoff times of two additional 2011 Wolverine football games on Tuesday (June 7).  U-M will open its 132nd football season on Sept. 3 at Michigan Stadium by hosting Western Michigan at 3:30 p.m. EDT on ABC.  The Wolverines, following their ‘Under the Lights’ contest against Notre Dame at 8 p.m. EDT on Sept. 10 (ESPN), will host Eastern Michigan on Sept. 17 at noon EDT, and it will be broadcast live by the Big Ten Network.

The Wolverines are 108-20-3 in season openers, including 92-15-2 in season openers at home, while the 2011 season marks the first time since 1976 Michigan will open a football season with five consecutive home games.

Five of the Wolverines’ 12 games now have kickoff times set.  The Big Ten Conference previously announced Big Ten Network primetime games and conference schools’ homecoming games.  No additional pre-selection of 2011 football games is expected until the six- and 12-day process begins for games of Sept. 24.
