There's only one way to get Michigan fans even more excited than they already are for the Jim Harbaugh era - get the voice of Darth Vader to narrate the pregame video inside the Big House. And that's just what happened on Saturday.

Before the Wolverines' home opener this past weekend against Oregon State, actor James Earl Jones' voice came over the loud speakers inside the Big House as he narrated a cool pregame video about his Alma mater. He attended the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Daily Motion got hold of this great video.

Any time one of the most iconic voices in American entertainment is involved, it's likely going to be a hit. And this is pretty cool.
