14. Ball State moved the game to Michigan's bye week so they could add
a twelfth game (Vanderbilt). It was actually gracious of Ball State to do so. Michigan wanted to add a 12th game to help them in the national rankings picture, because so many other teams have 12 games due to their conference playoffs. I would prefer that the Big Ten added the 12th game by playing every team in the conference, but I suppose some schools don't want to play Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State every year.
