The University of Michigan is unloading tickets to their season opener against Appalachian State on discount site Living Social.

The Wolverines are the second team to resort to the seat filling measure so far this year, with LSU also offering tickets to several home games, including conference contests against Mississippi State and Kentucky.

Michigan's athletic director has previously blamed poor cell phone service for declining attendance at games, especially among students, but ThePostGame.com points out that a survey of students showed the main thing discouraging their attendance was a new first come, first serve seating policy.

The Michigan package includes a hot dog, drink and a T-shirt along with a ticket and a program for $65.
