Behind the talents of Shoelace, Brady Hoke has resurrected the Michigan program in a short amount of time. Who would have thought this team would be sitting in the top 15 heading into their showdown in Chicago?
The offense is great, the defense is improving and the Wolverines are suddenly a contender for an upper tier bowl.
Northwestern, on the other hand, has struggled out of the gate, and the disheartening loss to in-state foe Illinois put another damper on the season. However, Dan Persa will continue to get healthier as the season progresses, which means good things for the Wildcats offense, but will not be enough this week.
Denard Robinson has a chance to do ridiculous things to your stat sheet—take a note fantasy players—against the porous defense of the prestigious academic institution. You may need a degree from Northwestern to calculate his total yardage.
Michigan 45, Northwestern 31
