Michigan vs. Cincinnati Game Thread

Welcome to this week’s game thread!

NCAA Football: Florida at Michigan Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Michigan fans, and welcome to this week’s game thread between the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Michigan Wolverines.

I will be at The Big House this afternoon, so I unfortunately will not be able to chat with you guys for most of the game. We’ve also got a few guys in the press box today covering the game, so be sure to stick around because we’ve got plenty of great content heading your way.

Anyways, let’s get to the meat and potatoes of the thread.

Game Info

Teams: No. 8 Michigan Wolverines (1-0) vs. Cincinnati (1-0)

Date: Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017

Location: Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Kickoff: 12 p.m. EST

Television: ABC/WatchESPN App

Radio: Michigan/IMG Sports Network (for a list of affiliates, click here)

Spread: Michigan -34.5; O/U: 48.5

The Wolverines’ defense dominated the Florida Gators’ offense last week in a 33-17 victory. Even though the score was somewhat close, that is not indicative of how the game actually played out, as Florida scored only three points on offense.

Now Michigan returns home to play against the 1-0 Cincinnati Bearcats, led by former Ohio State coach Luke Fickell. Cincinnati defeated Austin Peay last week 26-14 at home. This game will easily be Cincinnati’s toughest game all season, and probably Michigan’s easiest, so we will get a good look at how the Bearcats play under their new head coach. Perhaps we will even see some younger U-M players like Brandon Peters, Kareem Walker, etc. late in the game.

Today’s question: There are a lot of good, ranked college football games on this weekend. Which ranked game are you most looking forward to watching? I am most interested in Clemson/Auburn, but there a few other great choices. Leave your answer in the thread below and be sure to stick with Maize n Brew for coverage before, during and after today’s Michigan game.
