The Michigan Wolverines will play the Indiana Hoosiers in a Big Ten Conference Game on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana.

The Michigan Wolverines are 5-0 (2-0) this season after they defeated Iowa by a score of 27-14 in their last game. Michigan held Iowa to 281 total yards and held them to 0-2 on fourth down conversions in the win. The Michigan offense is averaging 45.4 points per game with 234.8 passing yards per game and 221.8 rushing yards per game. J.J. McCarthy has thrown for 848 yards and six touchdowns, while also rushing for 64 yards and one touchdown for the Wolverines this season. Blake Corum has rushed for 611 yards and 10 scores, while Ronnie Bell has caught 19 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown for Michigan. The Michigan defense is giving up 11.6 points per game and 252 yards per game.

The Indiana Hoosiers are 3-2 (1-1) this season after they lost to Nebraska by a score of 35-21 last week. Indiana only gained 223 total yards and went 2-15 on third down conversions in the loss. The Indiana offense is averaging 27.2 points per game with 278.8 passing yards per game and 105.2 rushing yards per game. Connor Bazelak has thrown for 1,392 yards, eight touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Hoosiers this season. Shaun Shivers has rushed for 345 yards and four scores, while Cam Camper (questionable) has caught 33 passes for 418 yards and one touchdown for Indiana. The Indiana defense is allowing 30.4 points per game and 423 yards per game.

Michigan is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games. The over is 8-2 in Michigan’s last 10 road games. Indiana is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games. The over is 11-4 in Indiana’s last 15 October games. The over is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Indiana.

Michigan is coming off of a big road win against Iowa, while Indiana did not look good against a below average Nebraska team. Michigan’s defense does have a few holes, but can Indiana exploit them? The Michigan offense has been very good at taking care of the ball and should have no issues scoring on the Hoosiers defense. I like Michigan in this game.
