Jim Harbaugh's third-year crack at beating rival Ohio State will come with an awfully big name on the Wolverines sideline.
In accepting the honor, Woodson told Harbaugh that the Ohio State game was the one Michigan home game he had circled to attend, anyway. Now, he'll not only be there, he'll get a chance to inspire a Wolverines team that hasn't beaten the Buckeyes since 2011. The Buckeyes beat Michigan 42-13 in Harbaugh's first year as UM's head coach in 2015, and nipped the Wolverines 30-27 in double overtime last year.
Meanwhile, Harbaugh continues to line up a list of honorary captains worthy of a red-carpet entrance. Last year, Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter and Tom Brady were among UM's picks as home-game honorary captains. Earlier this summer, Harbaugh confirmed that he's asked former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle to be honorary captains, as well.
