Sports radio network One-On-One Sports, Northbrook, Ill., said it signed a three-year pact to provide the first national radio network for play-by-play broadcasts of University of Michigan football games, beginning with the 1998 season. Michigan joins the University of Notre Dame (via the Mutual Broadcasting System) as the only college football teams with national radio network coverage. One-On-One said a minimum of six games will be broadcast over its owned-and-operated stations in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and 390 affiliates in the 1998 season; in subsequent years, Michigan will have the option to place its full 12-game schedule on the network. The network will carry the game broadcasts of Detroit's WJR-AM broadcast team.
