The Michigan Wolverines moved to 2-0 on the season with a 31-10 victory over Washington this weekend as they continue to develop their identity as a team. Now that the data from Week 2 is in the computers, there are some metrics to update.

The win and results from other teams on Michigan’s schedule have given ESPN more data points to update its Football Power Index (FPI), which now predicts an 8.6-3.5 record for the Wolverines. They came into the season with a 6-6-ish projection from the Worldwide Leader’s metric.
