The Michigan Wolverines are going to get a week off after playing in subpar conditions against the Purdue Boilermakers. After Harbaugh was vocal to the media about the conditions in the visiting team locker room and medical facilities, his club will likely relish the opportunity to take a week off.
When they return to action the following week, they’ll have their hands full in front of a national audience.
The Wolverines will square off against in-state and conference rival Michigan State.
The Spartans just suffered their first loss at the hands of Notre Dame and will be looking to rebound against a tough Iowa team this weekend before traveling to Michigan Stadium on Oct. 7.
The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET and Harbaugh’s Wolverines will look to continue their march to the College Football Playoff. They’ve managed to stay undefeated so far, despite an early test against the Florida Gators.
Harbaugh has been vocal about preferring to play afternoon games, but it appears he’ll have to set that aside for at least a week. The game will be televised on ABC, and will be the first night game between the two sides at Michigan Stadium.
