New, comments

It’s another college football game day!

A 3:30 p.m. tilt against one of the 20 worst teams in the country feels like punishment. “When are we going to get our pre-bar nap in?” the students wallow in fear. After halftime. That’s your answer.

Personally, I love winning games by a thousand. Let’s get to it.

GAME INFO

Teams: SMU Mustangs (0-2) @ #19 Michigan Wolverines (1-1)

Date: Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018

Location: Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Kickoff: 3:30 EST

Television: BTN (BTN2Go link here)

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

Spread: Michigan -36; O/U 53.5

Today’s question: Will Michigan throw for 300 yards against a sieve-like SMU defense? After the receiver curse was broken last week, I felt it proper to remain with the passing game for this week’s question.

Last year, Michigan went without a 300-yard passing game. They came close in a 280-yard effort against Purdue, but that was 51 weeks ago and the last time the Wolverines hit the 300-yard mark was November of 2016.

Michigan is not going to be able to overpower teams like Ohio State and Wisconsin, so having the threat of the pass established will be key in getting safeties and extra defenders out of the box.
