Teams to meet for first time since '07

Michigan and Appalachian State are ready for a rematch.

The Wolverines announced Thursday that they will open the 2014 season at home against Appalachian State.

The Mountaineers shocked the Wolverines 34-32 to begin the 2007 season, when the defending FCS champions blocked a potential winning field goal at the end of regulation.

"We look forward to facing Appalachian State again," Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said in a statement.

Appalachian State is currently deciding whether to move up to the FBS.

The 2007 meeting was the first between the two schools.

Michigan still has two games to fill on its 2014 schedule.
