Football to Face Appalachian State in 2014 Opener
ANN ARBOR – The University of Michigan football program will open the 2014 season with a match-up against Appalachian State University at Michigan Stadium on Aug. 30. This will be the second meeting between the Wolverines and Mountaineers at Michigan Stadium.
“We look forward to facing Appalachian State again,” said U-M Athletic Director Dave Brandon.
The only previous game in the series between Michigan and Appalachian State came in the 2007 season opener. The defending FCS champion Mountaineers stunned the Wolverines, 34-32, as ASU blocked a field goal attempt that could have won the game for Michigan at the end of regulation. It was the first-ever game broadcast by the Big Ten Network.
U-M has two remaining open dates on its schedule.
