The Michigan Wolverines have named their famed midfield tunnel after Hall of Fame coach Lloyd Carr, per ESPN college football insider Adam Rittenberg.

Carr led the Wolverines to a national title in 1997 and amassed a 122-40 overall record through his 13 seasons with the program (1995-2007).

Carr led the Wolverines to a top-10 ranking during each of his 13 seasons in Ann Arbor. His teams notched bowl game appearances in each season, collecting a 6-7 postseason record.

This year's Michigan team is off to a dominant start in 2022. Jim Harbaugh's 3-0 squad is currently ranked No. 4 in the nation after blowout wins over Colorado State, Hawaii and UConn.

This weekend, the Wolverines will welcome Maryland for their fourth and final contest of a four-game homestand to start the season. The Big House will o doubt be rocking as the team looks to maintain its undefeated record.
