Good teams win, great teams cover.

The Wolverines head to Evanston this weekend for a challenge against Chicago’s Big Ten team.

Northwestern lost its best player this week, but we expect them to come out fighting.

Michigan needs to continue carrying its momentum forward.

GAME INFO

Teams: #14 Michigan Wolverines (3-1) @ Northwestern Wildcats (1-2)

Date: Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018

Location: Ryan Field in Evanston, Ill.

Kickoff: 4:30 EST

Television: Fox (Fox Sports Go link here)

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

Spread: Michigan -14.5; O/U 47

Today’s question: Does Michigan start fast and evaporate any energy the Wildcats carry after Jeremy Larkin’s retirement?

We all know the Wolverines should win this game handily, but that doesn’t always happen. Northwestern is a well-coached team playing on an emotional high. Two weeks before the Wisconsin-MSU-PSU stretch, this game is the definition of a trap. Is Michigan ready?
