Lansing-based UM alumni ready for Wolverines in Orange Bowl

LANSING, Michigan (WILX) – The Michigan Wolverines and Georgia Bulldogs will take center stage at the Orange Bowl on New Years Eve.

Few expected Michigan to reach the playoffs this year, but they kept winning – ending the season 12-1.

Even in a sea of ​​Spartans, the University of Michigan alumni club in Greater Lansing is preparing to see the big game.

“It’s always an interesting time to be a Michigan alumni around the Lansing area,” said Jim Watling, a member of the alumni club. “I guess I’m looking forward to hopefully more success than the Spartans when they were in the playoffs a few years ago.”

Lansing’s U Of M Alumni Group is hosting a watch party in Renos North at 7:30 a.m. Friday night. You don’t have to be alum to participate.
