Michigan Wolverines will play host to Minnesota

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill to miss Michigan game after seizure


ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Michigan Wolverines will play host to Minnesota at The Big House for their Big Ten opener Saturday.

The game starts at 3: 30 p.m. in Ann Arbor. The teams will battle for the little brown jug trophy.

Dating back to 1982, the Wolverines have won 31 of their last 32 Big Ten openers.

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has suffered another seizure and did not make the trip with the Golden Gophers to face No. 19 Michigan.

Minnesota officials say Kill was not feeling well on Friday and planned to travel to Ann Arbor on Saturday in time to be there for the game. But he suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and is resting at home in Minneapolis.

Kill suffers from epilepsy. It's the fifth game-day seizure he has had in three seasons at Minnesota, and the second this year. Kill did not coach the second half against Western Illinois but did return to coach the entire games against San Jose State and Iowa.

This is the first time that Kill will miss an entire game because of a seizure. The Wolverines are coming off a win against Connecticut.
