Is there a reason Michigan plays in this ACC Challenge every year seemingly (which is great)? It seems like they always have UM and UNC.. with Iowa being pretty frequent as well, but if I recall correctly, they alternate Wake Forest, Duke, maybe PSU and NW? Any reasoning?

The score was 3-2, not 4-2.

Michigan took a 3-0 lead and held on in the final 12 minutes as UNC scored two quick goals.

Sam Swenson was the reason Michigan won this game. She was great as usual in the cage. No better way to start a season than beating the #1 ranked team.
