Slippery Rock University is exploring the possibility of playing a football game at Michigan Stadium at some point in the future. That game would not be against the Wolverines.

Slippery Rock University is exploring the possibility of playing a future football game at Michigan Stadium. The Division II school from Pennsylvania has played games at Michigan Stadium twice previously, taking on Shippensburg in front of a Division II record crowd of 61,143 in 1979 and facing Wayne State in 1981. Announcing the scores of Slippery Rock games at the stadium has been a tradition at the stadium which dates back to 1959.

Slippery Rock athletic director Paul Lueken confirmed that the two schools were discussing a game, but made sure to point out that nothing was definite (via Michigandaily.com):

"We love our positive relationship with Michigan football fans and how supportive they are of our program and look forward to a possible game in the future."

Michigan athletic director Dave Ablauf wouldn't comment on the possibility of Slippery Rock playing a game in Michigan, stating that the University discusses many possibilities with other schools.

The two schools haven't just worked together on their football programs, as their basketball teams will be playing in 2012. The University of Michigan men's basketball team will be kicking off their season on November 9 at home against Slippery Rock.
