The Michigan Wolverines are on the road for the second consecutive week after sticking in Ann Arbor for the first month of the season, taking on Scott Frost and the Nebraska Cornhuskers under the lights of Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.
Despite Nebraska only being a .500 team to this point, both teams have a lot going for them at the moment. Michigan is undefeated and coming off a huge victory at Wisconsin. Nebraska, on the other hand, are coming off a blowout win at home last weekend against the struggling Northwestern Wildcats. Nebraska’s three losses this year (at Illinois, at Oklahoma, at Michigan State) have all been wildly close games; they easily could be undefeated this year as well, so this won’t be an easy game for Michigan by any means.
It’s another huge Big Ten West matchup for the Wolverines tonight. Let’s get to the facts of tonight’s game.

Today’s question: How will the Michigan defense attack a mobile quarterback such as Adrian Martinez? The Wolverines haven’t had to deal with many mobile quarterbacks this year, and that was always a thorn in the side of Don Brown and past Michigan defenses. Will Mike Macdonald be able to scheme up a game plan to limit him on the ground and force him to use his arm?
