CELEBRATING ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF EDITORIAL FREEDOM
It will be the sixth time since 2011 that the Wolverines have used alternate jerseys, and the first time doing so with the Jordan brand gear.
Schoenle’s story is one of hard work— one of setting goals, and later meeting them.
Michigan rushed for 326 yards Saturday, their highest total since the 2014 season opener against Appalachian State and their most in a Big Ten game since Oct. 13, 2012 against Illinois.
Five sacks and stifling defense, especially on third down, have given the fourth-ranked Wolverines a 28-0 halftime lead.
Penn State ranks 118th in the country on third down, converting 27.3 percent of its chances, while Michigan leads the country in third-down defense, allowing a 10.5 percent conversion rate.
If the Michigan football team’s defense hadn’t stepped up and sidelined Colorado’s red-hot offense for the final three quarters of Saturday’s game, the Wolverines very likely would have lost a shocker to the Buffaloes.
Though Michigan remains strongly favored, the Buffaloes are also coming off a pair of routs, trouncing in-state rival Colorado State, 44-7, and FCS opponent Idaho State, 56-7.
Michigan coasted against Hawaii, winning by 60 points, and was challenged slightly more by Central Florida the following week but still ran away with a 51-14 victory.
The Michigan football team has allowed just 207 passing yards in the first two games of its season, but one lingering void in the secondary is growing more ominous by the day.
The group consists of Smith, freshman Chris Evans, redshirt junior Ty Isaac and sophomore Karan Higdon.
