Michigan-Virginia Tech pregame notes


NEW ORLEANS -- A few pregame notes from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where the teams have been on the field going through warmups.

  • As expected, Will Campbell worked as the first-team defensive tackle alongside Mike Martin. Thomas Gordon worked as the starting free safety.

  • It's definitely looking like Michigan will have more fans tonight. A lot of Maize in the crowd, and they're very loud.

  • Michigan quarterbacks Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner both threw the ball well in warmups and then chest-bumped one another before trotting off the field. Wolverines look loose.

  • A Pac-12 officiating crew will work tonight's game. Jay Stricherz is the referee.
