Wolverine Fans Enjoy Pre-Game Hype For Sugar Bowl In New Orleans

DETROIT (WWJ) – The University of Michigan takes on Virginia Tech Tuesday night in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans and U of M athletic director David Brandon is there.

“I know our fans are having a great time down here. We’ve got a huge number of Michigan faithful. We had a great pep rally yesterday,” said Brandon. “They closed down an entire city block and allowed us to have kind of a street party and it was a great pep rally.”

Brandon tells WWJ playing in a BCS bowl game in Coach Brady Hoke’s first season is great for the kids, fans, & recruiting.

“There’s been a lot of activities … the people of New Orleans have been incredibly hospitable and we’re excited to be here and we can’t wait to play a football game,” said Brandon.
