The Michigan football team faces increased expectation but must get past Ohio State to meet them.

Can the Wolverines finally breakthrough and claim their first Big Ten Title since 2005 — and potentially more? The Daily football beat — Max Marcovitch, Aria Gerson, Ethan Sears and Theo Mackie — has some thoughts. Here are a handful of (surefire) predictions as the college football season rapidly approaches.

Junior left-hander Tommy Henry threw seven innings and held UCLA to two runs to advance to the College World Series.

In the face of more adversity last night and his team’s season on the line, the tools were on full display as Henry locked down a potent Bruin offense. He made continuous adjustments on the mound and as a result did not allow a run in his final four innings of work.

Junior outfielder Christian Bullock recorded two hits, a stolen base and two runs in the 4-2 victory.

The Wolverines added one more run and were able to hold off the Bruins for the third time this season, winning 4-2 to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 1984.

Michigan coach Erik Bakich was surprised to see that Michigan was so close to winning, even with all of the free bases his team had given up.

WESTWOOD, Calif. — Michigan had no business staying competitive in Saturday night’s affair with UCLA. That is, at least according to coach Erik Bakich.

“If I’d have told you we were going to walk ten and make five errors and be in a 12-inning ball game with the number one team in the country, I don’t think anyone would have believed me,” Bakich said. “It was very similar to last week where we just had some sloppy plays that cost us.”

Sophomore right-hander Jeff Criswell sealed the game for the Wolverines.

WESTWOOD, Calif.  Watching their team trail 3-0 entering the bottom of the ninth, the UCLA faithful rose to their feet and delivered their loudest U-C-L-A chant of the night. It was so loud that it drowned out the songs blaring from the stadium's speakers.

Unfazed, junior right-hander Karl Kauffmann sprinted to the rubber, himself encouraged by the thundering "Let's Go Blue" chant making its way around the first base side of the stadium.

Michigan will take on top-seeded UCLA in the Super Regional Friday.

Sophomore outfielder Jesse Franklin hit a double in the fourth inning of Monday's 17-6 win.

Win or go home.

That was the scenario for the Michigan baseball team Monday after missing out on a chance Sunday to advance to the Super Regional. After losing to Creighton 11-7, they faced the Bluejays once again for another chance to advance.

Despite losing the series to Indiana, the Michigan baseball team holds a 1.5 game lead in the Big Ten standings over the Hoosiers.

The 6-5 win on Sunday afternoon prevented Indiana from completing the series sweep and allowed the Wolverines’ seniors to grab a win in their final regular season game at Ray Fisher Stadium.

Junior right-hander Karl Kauffmann gave up one run in seven innings and picked up the win.

The Wolverines were holding onto a 3-1 lead that had just been cut into by an RBI single by infielder Shawn Goosenberg. With two outs catcher Michael Trautwein ripped a grounder which passed a diving senior infielder Jimmy Kerr, but senior infielder Ako Thomas had him covered. Thomas’ dive was successful as he fielded the ball and tossed it to first for the out. Thomas effectively ended Northwestern’s comeback bid as the Michigan baseball team (26-11 overall, 6-3 Big Ten) won 4-1 over the Wildcats (16-18, 5-5) on Saturday afternoon.
