Game to watch (well, maybe DVR): UConn vs. Michigan

Aug 31, 2010, 9:33 PM EDT

While the Irish will be doing battle with the Boilermakers at 3:30 EST, Michigan will be opening up with Connecticut at the Big House. It’s far from the standard opening weekend fare for the Wolverines, and you’ve got to think that the upstart Huskies and coach Randy Edsall feel confident.

Or at least their marketing department does.

Right now, at the top of sports page, the two major banner advertisements are painted blue-and-white thanks to the University of Connecticut, taunting the loyal Michigan readers.

Both ads redirect you to a website hosted on UConn’s university website, where a video asks, “Can UConn be stopped?”

Check it out for yourself. Consider the score UConn 1, Michigan 0 at kick off.

    Play them hard Huskies, bang them up a bit, and further identify their weak areas – yes…..but I want to see all ND opponents go undefeated EXCEPT of course when they play the Irish. Especially the week before they play us. Three days, 5 hours, 50 minutes to kickoff – but who’s counting?
