Michigan Football: Five Things to Watch as Wolverines Battle Indiana

The history of the Michigan-Indiana series is one of quiet domination: since 1968 Michigan is 31-1. Indiana hasn’t won a matchup in the series since a 1987 upset in which Jamie Morris ran for 152 yards. A blocked punt in the first quarter allowed Indiana to win a low-scoring game and take over first place in the Big Ten.

The other historical footnote: although this is the seventh time that the Hoosiers have won their first three games in the past 20 years, Indiana hasn't actually started 4-0 since 1990. The team tends to stagnate once it enters the Big Ten schedule.

None of that matters Saturday, of course, but Michigan should be expected to win comfortably. This is the type of game where you simply hope that nothing disastrous happens—it will only be revelatory if Michigan struggles once again—but there will be a number of things to watch for on Saturday.
