Michigan moved to 3-0 with a blowout win on Saturday.

NCAA Football: Northern Illinois at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan Wolverines moved to 3-0 after a 63-10 destruction of the Northern Illinois Huskies on Saturday afternoon. It was a balanced effort offensively and another smothering effort on the defensive side of the ball. Plus, they let Cade McNamara throw the football!

Michigan has done what it needed to do against teams they should have beaten handily. The scores of each of the victories reflect the gap between who they’ve played and the progress Michigan has made. It has been a job well done ahead of Big Ten play when it might not be as easy to push teams around.

Despite the least talented opponent on the schedule, Michigan fans are buzzing as much as any of the other wins from earlier this season. We asked for your three-word reactions after the game ended and here were some of the best.

Michigan opens Big Ten play next weekend with a visit from the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on homecoming. The kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. in Ann Arbor.
