Weirdly absent from the list is The University of Notre Dame Marching Band, the first and oldest college marching band. Michigan's Marching Band was founded in 1896.
The Michigan Marching Band was the first to do a lot of things like appear in both Yankee Stadium and the Rose Bowl in the same season in 1948. This move earned them the nickname “The Transcontinental Marching Band.” Michigan was also the first Big 10 band to perform for an NFL Superbowl game in 1973.
