 ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - After one of its worst performances in the Big House, No. 15 Michigan is about to take its show on the road.
And Wolverines coach Brady Hoke is going to be staying up nights thinking about it.
Connecticut isn't exactly a marquee opponent, but Hoke isn't worried about overconfidence after Saturday's debacle against Akron. Facing a team coming off three straight 1-11 seasons, Michigan (3-0) had to make two defensive stops inside the 5-yard line to hang on for a 28-24 victory.
By the time Hoke got to the podium for his postgame press conference, he knew exactly how he has going to reward his team for the performance. ``We went out and practiced with helmets and shoulder pads, the whole thing,'' he said. ``I wouldn't say the kids were excited about it, but they accepted it. I was excited, though.''
