Michigan Football 2011: Wolverines Need to Prove Themselves Against Elite Offense
The Michigan defense has looked much improved from their 2010 counterparts but they still need to face an offense that can put up points. So far the closest to that was Western Michigan who is averaging 34 points which ranks 44th in the country.
Until they play a team squarely in the top third of the country in scoring offense, people are right to remained skeptical of this team. After all, they are giving up 375 yards per game but they have been absolute ball hawks, causing 14 turnovers in four games which is third in the country behind Vanderbilt and Connecticut.
The first team the Wolverines play with a top 40 scoring offense is Purdue who is averaging 36 points per game. They play the Boilermakers on October 29th.
Michigan could not have asked for a better way to break in this defense but do have to face Iowa and Nebraska after Purdue who are 23rd and 13th in the country in that category, respectively.
They will have to get through the insanely good Michigan State’s No. 8 scoring defense first but with Denard Robinson at quarterback that should be the least of their worries. Beating teams with a better offense is what this team really needs to do in order to prove itself
