U-M game moved to noon to avoid Hurricane Joaquin

The University of Michigan will still travel to Maryland for this weekend's game, but it won't be on during primetime anymore, thanks to Hurricane Joaquin.

The University of Michigan announced Thursday that the game was moved from 8:00 p.m. to noon to avoid interference from the hurricane. 

"The weather experts are still dealing with uncertain probabilities for the course of Hurricane Joaquin," said Jim Hackett, interim Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. "Thus we remain vigilant on developments and will err on the side of safety for all participants and fans."

Michigan is 3-1 and ranked 22nd in the AP Top 25. The game at Maryland is opening of the Big Ten schedules for both teams. It will be aired on the Big Ten Network.
