The Michigan Wolverines (6-2, 3-1 B1G) return home on Saturday afternoon to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (3-5, 1-4 B1G) trying to put the events of the previous game behind them for the second week in a row.
This time, it comes in the form of an emotional win on the road at Minnesota, but the Wolverines took a bit of a step back on defense last week and had their fair share of offensive issues.
So how do they get back on track? A visit from Rutgers could be the recipe for success.
The Scarlet Knights beat Michigan last year and put up 476 yards of offense, but that does not even look like a remote possibility on Saturday. Add in the fact that they will be without star wide receiver Leonte Caroo, who leads the conference with nine touchdown receptions this season.
Jake Rudock is expected to play for Michigan after leaving last week's game with a torso injury, while Drake Johnsonand De'Veon Smith appear to be getting healthier and ready to provide a boost to the run game.
