Michigan and Eastern Michigan renew the battle for bragging rights in Washtenaw County. According to Google Maps, it is just 6.0 miles from Rynearson Stadium in Ypsilanti to the Big House.
You may know that the Wolverines have never lost to EMU (7-0) or any other MAC conference school (22-0), but did you know Eastern isn’t the only team in Washtenaw county that’s battled Michigan? On October 10, 1891 Michigan locked horns with Ann Arbor High School and dropped them like a…well, like a high school team, rolling up 62 points on AAHS’s zero. I guess there weren’t any I-AA lambs to schedule to open the season back then.
