Everyone knows that Michigan weather is erratic, and it’s made for some interesting football games.

The Big Ten Network recently did a show on BTN2Go about the most memorable weather games, and six out of the ten games involved the Michigan Wolverines.

Associate Research Scientist Frank Marsik spoke in the show about the Michigan vs Western Michigan football game on September 3, 2011. Lightning shortened the game, making it the first Michigan game to end due to weather before all 60 minutes were played.
