The Wolverines will be playing Notre Dame starting at 8 p.m.
Volunteers will be provided with distinct ambassador shirts so they will be easily recognizable.
"Feedback from the first year of the program was tremendous, stating that the visibility of the ambassadors helped the crowds move along smoothly despite the increased traffic in the city," Mary Jo Desprez, Wolverine Wellness director at the University Health Service, said in a release.
Volunteers will be scheduled in pairs for a two-hour shift between the hours of 1 p.m. and 1 a.m. Ambassadors will be near the stadium but not within the stadium gates - they won't receive tickets or access to the game.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, participate in a 90-minute training session and have access to a cellphone for use on game day.
During the 2011 night game, 93 people volunteered to be ambassadors. This year U-M is hoping for between 100 and 150.
