The Michigan Tech University football team was having a dream season — they were perfect going into today’s Bash at the Big House. The MTU Huskies were facing off against Grand Valley State University at the University of Michigan’s stadium in Ann Arbor in an effort to smash NCAA Division II attendance records.
The stage was set for a fairy-tale ending for the Huskies — MTU was stomping on the competition and GVSU had just lost their two last games. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be according to the recap on the MTU Athletics Web site. Grand Valley won 24-7 after several Tech players suffered serious injuries in the game’s first half.
The quest to break the attendance record fell short by about 10,000 people. It was still the second-largest DII crowd ever. I think it would’ve been fun to have been there.
Next stop for the Huskies is the playoffs. We’ll see where they go from there.
