This game will be the first conference game and the second against a big school that's decent for the Wolverines. It should help that this game is at home and that Michigan has more talent. Their confidence will also be high coming into this one with a 3-0 record and are headed in the right direction.

It also helps that IU lost there key play-maker Kellen Lewis because the head coach kicked him off the team. He was the leader in passing and rushing, which wouldn't be that big a deal, but they also lost Thigpen, their second leading rusher.

Their leading receiver is also gone and the returning leader had just over 300 receiving yards."

This is a quote from my preseason prediction and I was pretty much dead on with all my comments, their, 3-0 record, high confidence level, more talent, and headed in the right direction. 

Indiana will be a decent team playing in Michigan, but the Wolverines just have too much talent and depth for them. Denard Robinson could be the key play-maker in this game. 

I look for Denard to get at least one running touchdown and quite possibly could put in two. Indiana has no one that can keep up with his speed and agility and he should exploit that quite easily. 

The running backs should have another good game and Tate should produce more than he did against Eastern Michigan University, as long as the receivers are not dropping the catchable balls. 

Just like my earlier prediction I think they'll win by 21-28 and we may see what some of these freshman can really do against Big Ten competition.
