Michigan’s make or break stretch begins at home under the lights.

We’ve all been waiting for this day since Michigan fell to Notre Dame to open the season. The stretch in between was always a speed bump on the Wolverines’ path to redemption. Wisconsin is finally here and with the Badgers comes another opportunity for Harbaugh to shake the big game demons.

Wisconsin comes in incredibly beat up on defense, but only a fool would be counting their maize and blue chickens before they hatch.

It’s time for Shea Patterson to make a statement and the Wolverines to take momentum into East Lansing. Let’s go.

Today’s Question: Is Vegas right?

This line opened between 6.5 and 8 depending on which book you looked at. After an early Wisconsin run, the line is now at -10 in the Wolverines favor. To me, that’s nuts.

Now, lines ALWAYS skew toward Michigan because the Maize and Blue are a popular pick and have a huge alumni base that likes to throw money around. I think 10 points is too high, but Vegas generally isn’t too far off.

This would be a massive massive win for the Wolverines. If the moneymakers are right, we could be in for a show.
