This month’s edition of Popular Mechanics magazine offered a very hot sports take in its September Calendar. For September 3, which features Michigan’s season opener at Utah, the magazine refers to the Utes as a “cupcake game.”

Any college football fan worth his salt knows that not only are the Utes, who went 9-4 in the brutal Pac-12 South in 2014, not cupcakes, but they shellacked the Wolverines at the Big House 26-10 last season. To apologize for the gaffe, the magazine sent Utah a gift: actual cupcakes.

Well played, Popular Mechanics. We’re sure Kyle Whittingham will be keeping that calendar on the bulletin board, however, if only to remind his players to refurbish their lawns next month.
