Long rumored, Michigan playing Alabama in the 2012 season opener at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is now a reality.
Michigan kicks off an ambitious 2012 schedule, with two dates still to fill, against a team that is the reigning national champion on Sept. 1 in the Cowboy Stadium Classic. The announcement was made Thursday.
ESPN and officials from Cowboys Stadium worked together to schedule the game, which will kick off at night. Michigan will be the away team, and the officials will be from the Big 12.
