|Weird fact: Virginia Tech cheerleaders don't wear shoes.|
On January 3, 2012, Michigan will play the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Sugar Bowl at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
Michigan has played in the Sugar Bowl just one other time, back in 1984. Bo Jackson and the Auburn Tigers beat Michigan by a score of 9-7.
Meanwhile, the Hokies are 1-2 in Sugar Bowl appearances. They beat Texas in 1995 by a score of 28-10. Then they lost to Florida State in 2000 and Auburn in 2005 by scores of 46-29 and 16-13, respectively.
Michigan and Virginia Tech have never played each other.
I will be spitting out random preview materials over the next several weeks.
