Winless UConn awaits tough task in No. 15 Michigan

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Ready or not, Connecticut football hits prime time this week. UConn hosts No. 15 Michigan on Saturday night in a game that will be televised nationally. While it may be just another road game for Michigan, It is being billed as a milestone for the Connecticut program, on par with the Huskies' 2009 upset win at Notre Dame or their 2011 appearance in the Fiesta Bowl. The school has added 2,300 temporary seats to Rentschler Field and expects to have more than 42,000 people inside the stadium, the largest crowd in school history. Michigan's sports information department said this will be the smallest stadium the Wolverines have played in since 1991, when the capacity at Boston College was just over 32,000. It will be the smallest crowd they have played in front of since 2007, when 40,604 watched Michigan play at Northwestern.
