No atmosphere compares to a night game in college football. The lights are coming back to The Big House on Oct. 13 as No. 15 Michigan hosts No. 16 Wisconsin.
The school announced the 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff via Twitter Monday morning.

Last time Michigan hosted a night game at home was in 2017, when it lost to in-state rival Michigan State, 14-10, in a monsoon.
The program is known for its lack of night games — hosting its first one ever in 2011. Since the arrival of new Athletic Director Warde Manuel in 2016, the Wolverines have made it a priority to host at least one a season, beginning in 2017.
The atmosphere attracts a more prominent energy within the confines of Michigan’s 109,901-seat stadium, producing more noise and national attention than the usual afternoon slot.
The Wolverines host Maryland for homecoming this Saturday at noon before prepping for next Saturday’s Top 25 matchup under the lights.
