One night game each year at Michigan Stadium 'would be a great goal,' says AD Dave Brandon
While discussing the Michigan brand in a Q&A session with Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com, athletic director Dave Brandon said the school won’t commit to more night football games until after the Sept. 10 game against Notre Dame.
But if all goes well, he says, “my expectations would be we would try to do a night game at least once a year. I don't know that we would necessarily go much beyond that, but to have one a year in Michigan Stadium would be a great goal.”
Brandon said the ideas he’s brought to the football program since he was named athletic director (night game, throwback uniforms, neutral-site game vs. Alabama) are meant “to pump some energy and create some excitement and bring Michigan back to the stage we’re used to playing on.”
