Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

After winning its first conference title in 26 years, Michigan will raise its 2011-12 Big Ten championship before the team's game against NC State on Nov. 27.

The Michigan Wolverines will unveil their 2011-12 Big Ten championship banner prior to their game against the NC State Wolfpack on Nov. 27, according to Rod Beard of The Detroit News.

The Wolverines finished a league-best 13-5 during the regular season, winning their first conference championship since 1985-86. Michigan finished the year at 24-10 overall, losing to 13th-seeded Ohio in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Heading into this season, the Wolverines are the nation's fifth-ranked team. During the offseason, they landed No. 18 overall recruit Glenn Robinson III to lead a strong class of newcomers. Michigan also returns top scorers Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Wolverines open their season on Friday against Pennsylvania's Slippery Rock University at the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor. Michigan will play its first game against a Division I opponent on Nov. 12, taking on the IUPUI Jaguars at home as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.
