Technically, the Sugar Bowl is eight days away. But for the Michigan football players still in Ann Arbor, 'Game Week' begins today.

That's what the sign on Schembechler Hall says. The image at right was distributed Monday morning by the official Michigan football Twitter account.

The Wolverines are on holiday break and will reconvene in New Orleans on Wednesday for a light workout.

They will hold the bulk of their practices at Tulane University, and two more will be at the Superdome, site of the Jan. 3 game.
