Highlights include:

  • Little Brown Jug: One of the oldest trophies in college football is on the line when Minnesota and Michigan play each other every season. Legendary and former Michigan equipment manager Jon Falk provides a history lesson of The Little Brown Jug and Michigan’s legendary football program
  • Cook in the Kitchen: Michigan’s Devin Funchess not only has great hands on the field, but also in the kitchen. The wide receiver talks about his passion, on and off the field.
  • Desmond’s Dish: ESPNU Road Trip visits The Brown Jug, a popular establishment on State Street, where former Michigan standout and current ESPN analyst Desmond Howard has a dish named after him.
  • A Big House Tradition: Tailgating is an essential part of the game day experience at Michigan. Eichenblatt and Tirado visit with Michigan football legend Dan Dierdorf and also met a couple who had been married just a few hours before and were celebrating their new life together.
  • The Big House: Go inside Michigan Stadium for the battle of Little Brown Jug. ESPNU Road Trip was on the sidelines as Minnesota would win the game for the first time since 2005 and just the second time in the last 24 games.
