Michigan Football vs. Indiana Game Preview: How to Watch, Score Predictions and More

Everything you need to know about Michigan's trip to Bloomington, including fun facts, broadcast information and your own personal score predictions.

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

The fifteenth-ranked Michigan Wolverines (7-2, 4-1 B1G) travel to Bloomington to take on Indiana (4-5, 0-5 B1G) in a contest that takes on a big more meaning given recent events.

Michigan's conference championship aspirations were hanging on by a thread until Michigan State's stunning loss at Nebraska. The Wolverines are right back in the thick of things, with help, of course.

A Spartan loss to Ohio State next Saturday will put destiny in Michigan's hands with the Buckeyes coming to town to end the season.

Regardless, they still must win out and hope scenarios fall their way, but the task at hand on Saturday of defeating the Hoosiers takes on even greater importance.

Indiana boasts and offense that has the ability to be very explosive. Quarterback Nate Sudfeld has put up very solid numbers this season (2229 yards, 15 TD, 5 INT) and has quite a few playmakers on the outside and in the running game. Wide receivers Ricky Jones and Simmie Cobbs, along with running back Jordan Howard are just a few names Michigan will have to account for.

This has the ability to turn into a bit of a shootout if Michigan's defense struggles a bit, but they are still in very good shape. Indiana's defense is as leaky as it gets and it should allow Jake Rudock and the offense to pick up where they left off against Rutgers last week.

The Wolverines have struggled on the road at times this year, which could make this game closer than comfortable for awhile. They should still be able to cover the spread and I have them walking out of Bloomington with a 34-20 victory.
