The Michigan football team defeated Ohio Wesleyan in the first game at Michigan Stadium.

The 1927 season of Michigan football brought a new coach in Elton Wieman, following the retirement of Fielding Yost. It saw Bennie Oosterbaan become a first-team All-American for the third straight year. The Wolverines also graduated All-American quarterback and halfback Bennie Friedman.

The Michigan footbal team beat Ohio State in front of the biggest crowd in Ferry Field history then defeated Minnesota to preserve a national title.
The 1923 Michigan football season was one of the most dominant in the Wolverines’ history.

It wasn’t originally little or brown.

It was a five-gallon jug, 16 inches tall with a 37-inch circumference. It weighed more than 20 pounds and was putty-colored.

The Chicago football team ended Michigan's "point-a-minute" undefeated streak in 1905.

In Fielding Yost’s first year as head coach of the Michigan football team, he did a few things — went undefeated with a 11-0 record, outscored his opponents, 550-0, and turned a fifth-place team around to become Rose Bowl and national champions for the first time ever.
