Michael Phelps to serve as Michigan's honorary captain for key B1G East battle
Michael Phelps is set for a visit to Ann Arbor and the Big House.
No. 4 Michigan is set for a top-10 contest with No. 10 Penn State in its biggest set of the season to date. Though Ohio State is the clear top dog so far in the B1G East, both teams look to establish themselves as the biggest threat in the division.
Michigan will bring in swimming legend and Olympic icon, Michael Phelps, as an honorary captain for the game.
Phelps didn’t actually swim for the school because he had already received an endorsement from Speedo while he was in college. However, Phelps still showed his support for Michigan athletics despite not graduating from the school.
He still participated in the program as a volunteer assistant coach while he was on campus.
Phelps will join the Wolverines on Saturday for another Fox Big Noon, 12 p.m. EST, kickoff.
