Slippery Rock to play Mercyhurst at Big House

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Slippery Rock is coming to Michigan Stadium -- just not to take on the Wolverines.

Michigan says that Slippery Rock will play at the 109,901-seat Big House on Oct. 18, 2014, when the Wolverines have a bye week. The game will pit Slippery Rock against Mercyhurst, a fellow member of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says Slippery Rock has a “special place in the hearts” of Wolverines fans. The announcing of Slippery Rock’s score has been a fixture during Michigan home games.

It’s the third Slippery Rock visit to Michigan Stadium. The school lost 45-14 to Shippensburg in 1979 and lost 14-13 to Wayne State in 1981.

Slippery Rock has about 7,200 students and Michigan has about 44,000.
