It appears Michigan's game at Minnesota on Oct. 31 will be a primetime kickoff.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has indicated the Gophers will play three primetime games this season, including against Michigan at TCF Bank Stadium on either ESPN or ABC.

Michigan opens the season with a Thursday night game at Utah Sept. 3 and also will play at night at Maryland on Oct. 3 on BTN.

Michigan interim athletic director Jim Hackett has said he would like to see more night games at Michigan Stadium but hasn't indicated what game -- if any -- will be in primetime.
