Flying Eagles, a team of former members of the now-disbanded Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity hosted their 82nd annual Mud Bowl game on Saturday morning just before the homecoming game between the University of Michigan and Northwestern University. University of Michigan has unsuccessfully tried to cancel the event this year and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon national fraternity suspended the Ann Arbor members for “health-and-safety violations and the failure of members to uphold … policies and procedures.”. Determined to uphold tradition, the local members organized the Mud Bowl independently. They faced an unassociated team made up of a variety of University of Michigan students. Flying Eagles won 24 to 10. The Mud Bowl has raised around $110,000 for Mott Children’s Hospital in the last six years alone. The Mud Bowl has been played in conjunction with Homecoming since 1933 in a round depression filed with water and mud in front of the now former house of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity in Ann Arbor, MI. Saturday, Nov., 20th, 2015.
