University of Michigan
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Students: 42,716 (Undergrads 27,407)
2012 Record: 8-4 overall, 6-2 Big 10

All-time record vs. USC: 1-1 with last meeting in 1985

For the second year in a row, USC will take on a Big 10 team on New Year's Day. Last year, the Gamecocks had plenty of success against Nebraska in Orlando and this year, the Gamecocks will look to do the same against Michigan in Tampa. If the Gamecocks can pull off the victory they will make history by having back-to-back 11 win seasons.
This will be the third time in school history that the Gamecocks and Wolverines will meet on the football field but this is the first time in a bowl game. Michigan has the most all-time wins in NCAA BCS division with 903 victories.

After Michigan's 33-28 loss to South Carolina in the Outback Bowl, headman Brady Hoke shared his thoughts on the defensive breakdowns, the performance of the offense, the improvements ahead for the program, and more. **With video**
Good news, Outback fans. You will either get a free blooming onion or coconut shrimp depending on who wings. You’ll probably read that last sentence and think I’m joking. I’m 100% serious. The Michigan Wolverines and the South Carolina Gamecocks are facing off on New Years Day. If you don’t have a particular team you are rooting for, it’s time to make a decision. Are you...
I was going to put my full effort into a preview of tomorrow's Outback Bowl, but when it really comes down to it, tomorrow feels more like an ending than anything else. The the most integral component of the Rich Rodriguez era, and the beginning of the Brady Hoke era, will play his last game for the Wolverines tomorrow afternoon. Rich's legacy at Michigan, for me anyway,...
Game time: Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET
Both Brady Hoke and Steve Spurrier are trying to take that last step that will vault their respective programs into the nation's elite. The two coaches look for clues how to achieve that for next season on Tuesday when Michigan plays South Carolina in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.
No. 19 Michigan (8-4) finished second to Nebraska in...
On the eve of the New Year and the Outback Bowl with South Carolina, Michigan coach Brady Hoke cleared up the Wolverines plan at the quarterback position—while other decisions remain foggy.
It may not have been the back-to-back BCS bowl appearances that Brady Hoke and company had hoped for at the onset of the season, but the Wolverines are, at least, playing on New Year's Day. Michigan and South Carolina will do battle in the Outback Bowl at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN.
It's no secret that the Big Ten has struggled against the SEC, but our staff seems to think that...
The Michigan Wolverines are trying to vanquish an SEC foe in the South Carolina Gamecocks. To do this, they had to pull out all the stops and use trickeration. It was 4th and 4 and the kicker went running off to the other side of the field. Steve Spurrier probably should have called a time out but let the play develop anyways. Brady Hoke chose this play call to perfection. Of course...
