FAU set to play Michigan in 2012


FAU might as well start paying taxes in Michigan.

It appears the Owls will play at Michigan in 2012 barring any snags in the final negotiations.


"It looks like both sides are ammenable to it," said FAU AD Craig Angelos.


FAU has played at Michigan State, played in Detroit for the Motor City Bowl, will play Michigan State in Detroit on Sept. 11 this season and will finish the three-game series with MSU in 2011.

A game with the Wolverines, who have won more games than any other college football team, would be big for the Owls, who have played traditional powers Texas and Nebraska the past two seasons.

The game could bring in close to $1 miilion for FAU.

Connections with Wolverines? I could come up with a couple: Defensive tackles coach Rody Payne played for Michigan (1993-97) as did football operations assistant Grant DeBenedictis (2004-08)
