Big Ten Saturday: It's game day

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Game day is here and not a moment too soon.

I'll grab my hard hat and head over to under-construction Michigan Stadium in a bit for Rich Rodriguez's Wolverines coaching debut against Utah. For the first time since 1985, Michigan will open the season ranked outside of the Top 25, but a win against a very strong Utes team could change things. 

There was a pretty good buzz around AA last night. I spotted a decent amount of Utah fans, who received minimal ribbing from Wolverines backers. I'm a big fan of the "Rod Rules" T-shirt with MTV's "Road Rules" logo in the background. And there was a guy wearing an A.J. Hawk Ohio State jersey working the counter at a convenience story directly across from campus. Brave or extremely stupid? You tell me.  

Let's look around the league, starting with the game I'll be seeing this afternoon.
