Playing their 3rd game in a row under the lights the Badgers take on the Michigan Wolverines at Ann Arbor at 6:30 pm this Saturday.  They call it the Big House and capacity is a whopping 115,109.  Wisconsin comes in 4-1 and ranked 15th while the 12th ranked Wolverines are 5-1 with their sole loss coming against Notre Dame.  Last year the Badgers fell to Michigan at Michigan Stadium 14-7.  Michigan leads the series 50-15-1.  Current coach is former Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh and his record with the Wolverines is 28-11.  Before taking the Michigan job he was the head man at the San Francisco 49ers and before that Stanford.  Michigan’s fight song is The Victors.  Michigan has the most wins in college football history with a total of 944.

James Earl Jones, who provided the iconic voice for Darth Vader’s character, enrolled at Michigan as a pre-med student before switching gears and graduating from the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance in 1955. Jones isn’t the only Michigan student to make it big: President Gerald Ford (who played football for the Wolverines), Madonna (did not graduate), Google co-founder Larry Page, Lucy Liu, and Tom Brady all attended, among others.
