Parachute Drop Highlights Michigan-Michigan State Events

Michigan went all out for its season opener against UConn when it came to pregame festivities. There was a rededication ceremony, two flyovers, Brock Mealer leading the team out of the tunnel, fireworks and more. It was quite the spectacle, to say the least.

There won't be quite as many festivities for Saturday's game between the Wolverines and Spartans, but there's a pretty solid list of events going on before and during the game, including a parachute drop, which should be pretty cool.

Special Events
• Parachute Drop into the stadium by the 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" from Fort Campbell, Ky.
• Maize Out
• Michigan Football Letterwinner Tunnel

Presentations
• Honorary Captain Phil Brabbs
• 1955 Football Team Reunion
• 2005 NCAA Champion Michigan Softball 5-year reunion
• Michigan Rowers World Champions

I thought there was going to be a flyover as well, but perhaps not since it's not listed. I guess we will just have to wait and find out on Saturday.
