- The toughest home game - Ohio STATE
- The second toughest road game - Penn State
- The third toughest road game - Indiana
Here's why UM MAY LOSE ALL THREE REMAINING GAMES:
INDIANA: Nate Sudfield is ranked #33 in the NCAA in QB-rating, which is second in the B1G after Connor Cook. While the Hoosiers don't have much defense, the Wolverines don't have much offense, either. So it may come down to a passing clinic by Sudfield, who does not appear to have a "favorite receiver" for Jourdan Lewis to wrap his arms around. The ball could go anywhere on the field on every play, with a no-huddle series on every possession. This will be SENIOR DAY in Bloomington.
Michigan is favored in this game, +11, take the points.
PENN STATE: Christian Hackenberg is the most prolific passer in Nittany Lion history, which may or may not be saying much. But he's no Jake Rudock, if you catch my drift. (You know how Connor Cook has 21 TD passes to only 3 INTs? Hackenberg has 13 TDs to only 3 INTs as well.) PSU has also selected UM for its famous "White-Out" game, so you can expect very little yellow and blue in the stands that day. This will be SENIOR DAY in Happy Valley.
If Michigan is favored in this game, take the points.
OHIO STATE: The Buckeyes are better than the Wolverines by every measurement. It's an ongoing UM fantasy to dream about upsetting the defending national champion, for no other reason than they have "played them close" in recent years. What the Michigan Faithful cannot understand is that Urban Meyer was playing cat-and-mouse with That Team Up North in order to keep Brady Hoke clapping his hands on the sideline. Now that there is no reason for Urban to not blast his main rival, he will simply blast his main rival.
