The Michigan Wolverines have announced the addition of the Air Force Falcons to their 2012 football schedule. The matchup is a one-game contract.
Michigan will host Air Force at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor on September 8, 2012. It will be the home opener for the Wolverines following their September 1 game against Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The Wolverines and Falcons’ only meeting was in 1964 in Ann Arbor. Michigan won the game 24-7.
The 2012 schedule for Michigan will be very tough. The Wolverines open against Alabama, host Air Force and then travel to Notre Dame on September 22. Big Ten games include Michigan State, at Nebraska, Iowa and at Ohio State.
Air Force opens the 2012 season at home against Idaho State before traveling to Ann Arbor. The Falcons have their annual games with Army and Navy to go along with their MWC schedule, which now includes Boise State.
