Old School ABC College Football Intro

Via The Wiz of Odds comes this intro to the 1990 Michigan/UCLA game, which happened to be Gary Moeller's home debut (which U-M won 38-15):

The video is great for so many reasons. Gotta love Brent Musburger's glasses, which fit perfectly with the old school graphics (I especially liked the UCLA logo). The Big Ten logo didn't have the incorporate an "11". Dick Vermeil was the color commentator, and raved about Michigan's enormous offensive line. That line averaged all of 6-5, 282 pounds, which outweighed the New York Jets line that year.

But the reason you can really tell this video is over 18 years old? Notre Dame was number one in the polls at the time. When it's put that way, it's a wonder that Musburger and Vermeil are still alive today.
