Michigan Stadium without power prior to Nebraska game
At least it's not a night game.
Roughly 90 minutes prior to kickoff for the Michigan football team's home game with Nebraska on Saturday, Michigan Stadium suffered a partial power outage, leaving the scoreboards blank and the public address system silent.
The game, Nebraska's first trip to Ann Arbor since 1962, is scheduled to begin at 12:01 p.m.
Michigan had scheduled several pregame festivities prior to kick.
To honor all current and former veterans, Michigan had scheduled an American flag "card stunt" during the playing of the national anthem. In addition, four F-18 planes were scheduled to fly over the stadium.
Former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr was also slated to be honored Saturday for his election into the College Football Hall of Fame.
As of 11:20 a.m., power had not returned to the stadium press box. However, the north endzone scoreboard had begun to flicker and music started playing over the public address system.
