The Colorado State Rams will visit the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday afternoon from Michigan Stadium in this matchup from Ann Arbor, Michigan. The weather is expected to be 82 degrees and partly cloudy.
The Colorado State Rams are coming off a disappointing 2021 season where they went 3-9 and lost their last 6 games.
The Colorado State Rams are playing under first-year head coach Jay Norvell this season. He brought multiple players with him, including quarterback Clay Millen, wide receiver Tory Horton and wide receiver Melquan Stovall as this team looks to pass more. Millen is a freshman who did not play for Nevada last year, and he is playing behind a completely rebuilt offensive line.
Michigan had a great season last year as they were the Big 10 champs. They will be looking to repeat but have some quarterback controversy.
Cade McNamara, who started every game last season, is having to fend off sophomore J.J. McCarthy. Head coach Jim Harbaugh announced that McNamara is going to start against Colorado State, while McCarthy will start the second game against Hawaii. Time will tell to see who wins the job on a long term basis.
McNamara completed 64.2% of his passes for 2,576 yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions last season.
Starting running back Blake Corum returns as well. Top receiver Ronnie Bell returns after suffering an ACL injury early last season. Tight end Erick Ali and wide receiver Ronnie Bell are also key pieces.
The under is 4-1 in Rams last 5 games in September and is 4-1 in Michigan Wolverines last 5 non-conference games.
Although the Michigan Wolverines are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, they are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. MWC. The Colorado State Rams are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. This feels like too many points for Michigan to cover with unexpected quarterback play as these two try to play it safe in the battle. I think the Michigan Wolverines win the game, but don't cover all these points here.
