Jim Harbaugh says Michigan football will play a game on 'foreign soil'

CHICAGO — Jim Harbaugh's talked about playing a regular-season football game in another country for a while now.

And Friday, Michigan football's head coach said that's probably going to happen at some point soon.


Harbaugh wouldn't reveal the opponent or the destination, just saying an announcement should be on the way.

"You can talk to (athletic director Warde Manuel) about this. But I think we're really close to announcing playing another team on foreign soil," Harbaugh said after being asked a question about whether or not he'd be open to playing a game in Mexico City.
