Sugar Bowl fun: Michigan's Ryan Van Bergen defeats Big Will Campbell in rap battle during bowling alley trip

By Kyle Meinke

NEW ORLEANS — Even a business trip calls for a little fun now and then.

And the Michigan football team had its share of laughs Friday night during a bowling trip to the Mid City Rock 'n' Bowl in New Orleans.

The event kicked into high gear as defensive linemen Ryan Van Bergen and Will Campbell squared off in a rap battle. Only, it wasn't much of a matchup.

Take a listen, as Van Bergen shows he's dope on the mic. ... Well, at least for a 6-foot-6, 288-pound defensive lineman from Whitehall, Mich.

Michigan plays Virginia Tech on Tuesday in the Sugar Bowl (8:30 p.m., ESPN).
