Michigan Week: The Stadiums

Today, we'll take a look at the home fields for the Buckeyes and the Wolverines. Ohio Stadium also known as "The Horseshoe" and Michigan Stadium, known as "The Big House".

Ohio Stadium was built in 1922 and has a current seating capacity of 102,000

Michigan Stadium was built in 1927 and has a current seating capacity of 106,200

It's interesting that both of their opening games were played against my Alma Mater-Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU lost both games).
