Much has been made in the last eight months of the Michigan football team’s debut with Jim Harbaugh at the helm. What hasn’t been talked about as much is the Wolverines’ opponent in Thursday’s opener. Utah finished 9-4 last season, including a 26-10 drubbing of the Wolverines in Ann Arbor.
In Salt Lake City, the team returns half of its starters from last season and has its eyes set on a division title. That doesn’t mean the Utes steered clear of Harbuagh fever, though.
