ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michigan's hockey team could play two outdoor games next year, one at Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium and the other at Michigan Stadium.

Michigan's executive associate athletic director says the Wolverines are considering a December 2010 game at Michigan Stadium. The football venue will seat about 108,000 after renovations.

Mike Stevenson tells The Ann Arbor News talks are concluding for a Wolverines-Badgers hockey game at Camp Randall on Feb. 6. Wisconsin's football stadium seats 80,321.

Michigan coach Red Berenson tells The Michigan Daily outdoor games are a growing trend in the sport.

The outdoor hockey attendance record is 74,544, set when Michigan State hosted Michigan at Spartan Stadium on Oct. 6, 2001.
