The Michigan Wolverines are rolling. Coming off their third straight blowout win of 30 points or more, the Wolverines will look to make it four straight victories when they take on the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday, Nov. 23.
Wolverines clicking on all cylinders
Heading into the second from last regular-season game, Michigan is clicking on all cylinders on both sides of the ball.
Quarterback Shea Patterson has played like a seasoned veteran and with all of his weapons on offense really starting to gel, this Michigan team is determined to finish the season on a high note.
With wideouts Ronnie Bell, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Nico Collins, along with tight end Nick Eubanks all healthy, this offense is getting better each week.
While the passing attack is performing well, it is the Michigan defense that has opened some eyes over the last month.
The Wolverines are now ranked No. 5 overall in defense (17th rush, 4th pass) and that will only boost their confidence heading into the final two games of the season.
Not your Dad’s Hoosiers
With many Michigan fans counting down the days until they host Ohio State at the Big House, let us not look past these Indiana Hoosiers.
The Hoosiers are playing great. At 7-3, they would love nothing more than to knock off the Wolverines at home this week.
Indiana is coming into this matchup on a losing note as they dropped their last game 34-27 to Penn State.
That is the first loss the Hoosiers have suffered in more than a month – but don’t let a tough loss to the Nittany Lions fool you. Indiana had a four-game winning streaked snapped and now they will try to rebound at home vs. the Wolverines.
Las Vegas oddsmakers have Michigan listed as an 8-point favorite in this contest.
While the Hoosiers are playing well and will be up for this game, Michigan has too much firepower on both sides of the ball.
It stays close early, but in the end, it is all Maize and Blue.
