It's no surprise that Michigan is undefeated through three games.

But the way that the Wolverines have arrived at 3-0 is a bit perplexing.

In Week 1, Team 134 blew the doors off Central Michigan, 59-9. Notre Dame fell 41-30 in Week 2, and Michigan then appeared to be a top-10 team in the making, one that could challenge for a B1G championship. 

Then Saturday happened. Akron came to The Big House and nearly left a winner. That shocked the masses. No one expected the Zips to hang around past halftime, let alone push Hoke to a one-play decision. 

Nonetheless, Michigan escaped with a 28-24 win that probably should have gone to coach Terry Bowden's club. But a win is a win, or so it's said. 

This slideshow will examine the biggest shocks through the first three games. Akron, obviously, is the heavyweight in the mix. But there's much more than a four-point victory to discuss.
