Here are some reasons to stay tuned into this game, even if things get out of hand like they did two weeks ago.
This culture of learning spawns from a competition-rules-all culture in Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s staff.
Most players took the long weekend as an opportunity to go home and see their families.
A large part of Michigan's rushing success Saturday was due to a prolific offensive line, though the unit got off to a less-than-ideal start.
For four quarters, the No. 4 Michigan football team ran through Rutgers with ease, and it showed in the final score: 78-0.
Peppers may be the best player in the country, and while Jim Harbaugh almost never makes comparisons, he stated his support for Peppers on Saturday.
Though this week’s game at Rutgers isn’t nearly as challenging on paper as the Wolverines’ most recent matchup, Michigan will finally find itself in an unfriendly environment.
After fifth-year senior cornerback Jeremy Clark tore his anterior cruciate ligament against Penn State two weeks ago, it is vital for Michigan that both Stribling and senior cornerback Jourdan Lewis remain healthy competitors.
So far this season, the Wolverines’ defense has tallied 20 sacks, two of them coming Saturday in a 14-7 victory over the eighth-ranked Badgers.
Stribling shifted the momentum when his teammates seemed sluggish.
