I believe it brought the Iowa Men's Basketball team to Ann Arbor for the Iowa vs UofM game Saturday.

Yes, it was on a charter. College sports is now big business. Many (if not all) major college/univ teams charter. 50 seat RJ's are the perfect size.

Here is the A/C that flew CHQ900 yesterday.

I guess I would have expected a larger aircraft, but then again it isn't football which requires a much larger aircraft.
