The Michigan Wolverines (1-1) are looking to bounce back this week after a rough outing last Saturday. In front of them are the Indiana Hoosiers (2-0). Despite not having suffered a loss to the Hoosiers since 1987, they have still been thorns in Michigan’s side over the last decade or so, giving them close call after close call.
To say Michigan’s season is on the line isn’t really a bold statement by any means. Win, and you give yourself a chance to gain some momentum coming back home for a night game against Wisconsin. Lose, and the fan base loses its temper even more and the “Fire Harbaugh” chants will be more loud than ever.
But for now, let’s get to the facts of the game.
Teams: No. 23 Michigan at No. 13 Indiana
Date: Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020
Location: Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Ind.
Radio: Michigan/IMG Sports Network (for a list of affiliates, click here)
Spread: Michigan -3.5; O/U: 54
Today’s question: How will Michigan’s defensive backs perform against a much better passing attack at Indiana with quarterback Michael Penix Jr. and wide receiver Whop Philyor? Vincent Gray, Gemon Green and Jalen Perry got burned time after time last weekend against MSU, and Brad Hawkins didn’t have a very inspiring performance either, so it’ll be very important for them to lock in early if they want any shot at beating the Hoosiers.
