REPORT: Michigan stadium to widen tunnel access

Michigan Stadium has been under scrutiny this season after a couple of incidents.

The Wolverines and Penn State Nittany Lions players were caught jawing in the tunnel during halftime of the game.

Worse took place weeks later when Michigan State players were caught fighting a couple of Michigan players in the tunnel following the football game.

According to Aaron McMann of MLive, the University of Michigan plans to remove 45 seats in Section 1 to widen the tunnel access.

By removing 45 seats it will give coaches and players added room to access the tunnel.

The hope is with the additional room, it will eliminate further incidents in the tunnel.

A source told MLive this decision stems from a fan, who is now banned from the stadium, touching Michigan State coach Mel Tucker’s head.

Even though Michigan plans on eliminating 45 seats, the stadium capacity will remain unchanged.

The plan is to add standing room only seats to keep the capacity the same.

We will continue to update you with more information when it comes available.
