Okay, now that we have previewed Michigan's first home games, it's time to take a look at the final four home games
Week 7 vs Delaware State
October 17th, 2009
Now on paper this game points to Michigan and that is correct I would say. On offense for Delaware state there starting a new QB, and they lose most of there wide recievers from last year. Thus, for Michigan's defense it should be a fun day of sacks and forcing turnovers. Brandon Graham we all know will have another huge day, and on offense for Michigan this will be Tate Forciers seventh game, and he should be very famililar with the offense, expect him and Brandon Minor to tear up the DSU defense.
Michigan Wins Big 52-3
Week 8 vs Penn State
October 24th, 2009
This will be one of many tests for Michigan this year. On offense for Penn State they return a some key starters from last year, including QB Daryll Clark and RB Evan Royster, so they should put up a few points on the Michigan defense. On offense for Michigan this will be the first real test for Tate Forcier and with seven games under his belt expect him to struggle a little against a very good Penn State defense, which was ranked in the top 10 nationally in total yards and run defense. Michigan will score a few points, but at the end of the day it just wont be enough
Penn State over Michigan 30-14
Week 10 vs Purdue
November 7th, 2009
Well, this game points again to Michigan as Purdue will be very young and have a brand new coaching staff. On offense for Purdue they return QB Joey Elliot, but they dont have any receivers to throw to and again will be very young. On offense for Michigan, Tate will be very comfortable having run the offense for the last two months, so expect him and Brandon Minor to put up some big numbers against a young Purdue defense. Now i know tha they beat us last year but thisyear it a little different considering a new coaching staff for Purdue.
Michigan Cruises over Purdue 45-10
Week 12 vs Ohio State
November 21st, 2009
Okay, this is the game that we have waited all season long for. Im getting fired up right now as I write about this game. Although Ohio State has won the last five meeting, including the last two in Ann Arbor, the Buckeyes will come in thinking that they can beat us like always, well there in for a big surprise. On offense for Ohio state they return QB Terrelle Pryor as well as RB Brandon Saine. However, they lost there top three WR from last year and plus this will be a young team for Ohio State, so expect them to put up some points, but overall I expect that the Michigan defense should keep them in check. On offense this is the game that Tate has been waiting for all season long as well as Brandon Minor. Ohio State will be very good up front so expect Minor to have an okay game. However, this is the game that we will see if Tate can carry this team to victory. I beleive he will have a great game as will the receivers. Thus, I have an upset that we all have waited for for the last five years. The drought ends here. It will be a tough task but i believe Michigan will pervail.
