ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan is opening with Appalachian State this week, rekindling memories of one of the biggest upsets in college football history.

The visiting Mountaineers beat the fifth-ranked Wolverines 34-32 on Sept. 1, 2007, a game that was scheduled just several months before it was played.

Michigan was loaded offensively with NFL-caliber players Chad Henne, Jake Long and Mario Manningham. Its shaky defense, though, gave up nearly 6 yards per play to a speedy, spread offense that helped Appalachian State win the previous two Division I-AA national championships.

The Wolverines, past and present, do not like to look back much at the historic afternoon. The Mountaineers, meanwhile, love to recall the game that raised awareness about their program and school in Boone, North Carolina.
