Even in a sea of Spartans, the University of Michigan Alumni Club of Greater Lansing is gearing up to watch the big game.

“It’s always interesting times as Michigan alumni here in the Lansing area,” said Alumni Club member Jim Watling. “I guess I’m looking forward to hopefully more success than the Spartans had at their time in the playoffs a few years ago.”

Lansing’s U of M Alumni Group is hosting a watch party at Reno’s North Friday night at 7:30. You do not have to be an alum to join in on the fun.
