Slippery Rock is going back to the “Big House.”

The University of Michigan announced Saturday that Slippery Rock will play Mercyhurst in a Division II football game Oct. 18, 2014 at Michigan Stadium. The game will commemorate the 35th anniversary of Slippery Rock's first visit to Ann Arbor.

The game, which will occur on Michigan's bye week, will be the third time Slippery Rock has played at Michigan Stadium. In 1979, Slippery Rock lost 45-14 to Shippensburg before 61,143 fans, the largest crowd to see a Division II game. In 1981, Slippery Rock lost 14-13 to Wayne State (Mich.).
