It’s officially Game Week for the Michigan Wolverines, as their schedule for the 2020 campaign officially kicks off this Saturday against the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh revealed the seven players who will serve as team captains earlier this evening during his appearance on the “Inside Michigan Football” radio show with Jon Jansen.
Per Harbaugh, defensive tackle Carlo Kemp, defensive end Kwity Paye, defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, linebacker Josh Ross, fullback Ben Mason, tight end Nick Eubanks and center Andrew Vastardis will all serve as captains for the Wolverines this year.
“All those guys are just very deserving, top-shelf players and leaders,” Harbaugh said.
The seven captains are the most that the Wolverines have ever had in a season.

Former Tigers Slugger Marcus Thames has met with team for managerial position
The Detroit Tigers are in need of a new manager following the decision by Ron Gardenhire to call it a career last month with the season winding down.
And while there have been a few candidates listed that have some controversy still surrounding them due to their role in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal, one new name will instantly have Tigers fans reminiscing.
Marcus Thames, who currently serves as hitting coach of the New York Yankees, has met with Detroit Tigers management regarding their managerial opening, as reported by Tony Paul of The Detroit News:
Thames and the Yankees had their season ended by the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday.
Appearing mostly in left field and as a designated hitter, Thames blasted 115 home runs and 301 RBIs during his MLB career, which ran from 2002 to 2011.
He appeared in 485 career games with the Tigers, and also had stints with the Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Texas Rangers.
