LSU coach Les Miles; Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh

LSU’s 2015 season will culiminate in the 2016 Outback Bowl against Jim Harbaugh’s first Michigan team, according to a Sporting News report projecting end-of-the-year bowl pairings.

The intriguing matchup would not only pit Les Miles against his alma mater who he had past flirtations with, but with Michigan’s fiery first year coach Jim Harbaugh, the former San Francisco 49ers coach who assumed the helm of the Wolverines this year.
