Michigan is reporting football season-ticket sales of nearly 90,000, an immediate boost following the hiring of Jim Harbaugh as coach.
The 89,975 season-ticket sales are the school's most since 2012, and the 72,076 non-student season tickets are the most since 2009.
Michigan students claimed 17,899 tickets, up from 11,597 last season.
Harbaugh was hired in December after a mediocre stretch under Brady Hoke. Michigan went 5-7 last year, and there were patches of empty seats at Michigan Stadium at times, especially in the sections where students usually sit. The team's decades-long streak of home games with attendance of at least 100,000 did manage to survive the season, but not by much.
