Michigan and Night Games

Saturday will be just the fourth night game in Michigan Stadium history. A school like Penn State has no problem hosting games under the lights. Why does the University Michigan—its administration, head coach, and many of its fans—reject the idea? What do players think? I sought answers in an in-depth story for Scout.
