Field Hockey Wins the Big Ten

Although you may not be able to tell from our blog, Michigan does compete in more than just football. Here's a shout out to the University of Michigan field hockey, who clinched the regular season Big Ten title with their 3-2 victory over Northwestern Sunday. Their season began on a low note, as they began 2-4, with all the losses coming against top 5 teams, including an overtime loss at #1 Maryland. Since then Michigan has reeled off 11 straight victories and has climber to #4 in the country. The team heads to California this weekend to finish out the regular season with matches against California and Stanford, before returning to the Midwest to compete in the Big Ten tournament in Columbus November 1-4.

Completely Unrelated Random Fact of the Week: Virginia Tech won the Under Armour College Bass National Championship. First, the Virginia Tech team only found out that college bass fishing existed six months ago. Second, college bass fishing exists, and it's sponsored by Under Armour. Really.
