Michigan's One-Man Show Will Be Way Too Much for Illinois

Adam KramerNational College Football Lead WriterFebruary 14, 2015

Although these two teams appear headed in opposite directions within the greater picture, their 2012 makeup is very similar. 

Both Illinois and Michigan rely heavily on their quarterbacks, and when they aren't productive, usually their team loses. Now, this is the case with most college squads, but Nathan Scheelhaase and Denard Robinson go above and beyond normal production and expectations in their offenses.

Although Michigan kicked off the season in a rather unimpressive fashion, their convincing win against a much-improved Purdue team was a very big step in the right direction. They now head back home as more than a three-touchdown favorite against Tim Beckman's group.

Will it be the Denard Robinson show once again, or will someone else step up for the Wolverines? Bigger yet, will it even matter in this game?
