"Maize Out" Planned for Contest Against Nittany Lions

ANN ARBOR, Mich. --  In a continuing effort to bring more excitement to Michigan Stadium, the University of Michigan Athletic Department along with the Maize Rage will ask all fans attending Saturday's (Oct. 15) football game against No. 8-ranked Penn State to wear a yellow shirt, jacket or sweater to support the Wolverines with a "Maize Out."

"We have been working with the Michigan Athletic Department for a number of years to enhance the game-day atmosphere at all Michigan sporting events," said Dave Stuart, Maize Rage president. "This time, we are not only asking all U-M students to wear yellow, we would love to see all Michigan fans wear something yellow to show our support during this regionally televised game on ABC."

"We've had great support from the student body for our other efforts in creating atmosphere," said Nick Benson, Maize Rage outreach coordinator. "So, we especially hope the U-M students will be the driving force behind this 'Maize Out.'"

Kickoff on Saturday will be at 3:30 p.m. and all gates to Michigan Stadium will open at 1:30.
