Tonight’s attendance in the Big House: 114,804, a new record for college football. Population of Ann Arbor, Michigan: 113,934. The first night game in the 133 year history of UM football, and it drew the biggest crowd ever.

And what a show they saw. Wolverines 35, Notre Dame Fighting Irish 31.

In a finish that was so fantastic, you would doubt its believability if you saw it in a movie.

Notre Dame vs. Michigan: Brutally Honest Game Preview

ESPN College Football Game Day will make a return trip to Ann Arbor for the first time since the 2007 season as the Michigan Wolverines host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the “Under the Lights” matchup kicking off at 8 p.m. EDT and will be televised on ESPN. That’s right the first night game in the 133 year history of UM football. Have to quote Kanye West and Rihanna here: “turn up the lights in here baby. Extra bright I want y’all to see this.”

It’s just too bad neither team is ranked; it would give the contest more oomph. At least there’s loads of tradition, as both schools are top 5 in all time wins and winning percentage.

Former U-M Heisman Trophy winner (1991) and current ESPN College Football Game Day analyst, Desmond Howard, will be honored in conjunction with the game.
