  MICHIGAN FOOTBALL gan head coach Brady Hoke said in a release. "Our players really enjoy playing in primetime at Michigan Stadium." The Wolverines hold a 10-6 all-time advantage over the Nittany Lions. The two historic programs had never met on the gridiron before Penn State joined the Big Ten in the early 1990s. After winning nine straight games over the Nittany Lions from 1997- 2007, Michigan has dropped four straight games against Penn State: 46-17 in 2008, 35-10 in 2009, 41-31 in 2010 and 43-40 in four overtimes last season. The Wolverines are 2-0 in night games in Michigan Stadium. In 2011, Michigan hosted Notre Dame in "Under The Lights," the first-ever primetime kickoff in Big House history. After falling behind 24-7 late in the third quarter, the Wolverines stormed back and scored the game-winning touchdown with two seconds on the clock to triumph 35-31 in one of the most thrilling fin- ishes in recent memory. Last season, Michigan once again hosted the Fighting Irish for a night game — dubbed "Under The Lights II" — and won 41-30. Michigan will also play an evening kickoff at Notre Dame this season, which will be the final game in the series between the two old rivals, after Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick decided to cut ties with the Wolverines. That game will be a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. A third evening kickoff time has also been announced for this season, with the Wolverines traveling to New Jersey Oct. 4 for the program's first- ever game versus Rutgers. Game time will be 7 p.m., and the matchup will be televised on the Big Ten Net- work (BTN). GRAHAM GLASGOW SUSPENDED FOR SEASON OPENER Redshirt junior offensive lineman Graham Glasgow was suspended for a portion of spring football and the Wolverines' season-opening game versus Appalachian State Aug. 30 for a "violation of team expectations," according to a statement released by Michigan head coach Brady Hoke March 20.
