Michigan is up 13-3 over Indiana at halftime.

In the first half alone, the No. 17 Michigan football team was called for 11 penalties, totaling 98 yards. While that is already a high figure on its own, the timing of the flags has been even more costly for the Wolverines, who hold a 13-3 lead over Indiana at the break.

Fifth-year senior defensive tackle Maurice Hurst is heading into Indiana coming off a 10-tackle outing against the Spartans.

The 17th-ranked Wolverines will face Indiana with hopes of redemption, no matter how slight it may be. The Daily breaks down the matchup.

Fifth-year senior quarterback John O'Korn is looking to bounce back against the Hoosiers after a three-interception outing against Michigan State.

The Wolverines' goal is to win out, starting with Indiana on Saturday. Here’s what to watch for when Michigan travels to Bloomington to take on the Hoosiers:

Fifth-year senior quarterback Richard Lagow has struggled in 2017, throwing three interceptions before Peyton Ramsey took over as the starter.

The Daily spoke with Lagow at Big Ten Media Days in July about playing in former Michigan offensive coordinator Mike DeBord’s scheme this year, his long-winding journey to Indiana and facing Michigan’s top-ranked defense.

Fifth-year senior defensive tackle Maurice Hurst stood out against the Spartans, alongside his linemates Chase Winovich and Rashan Gary.

Rather than at each specific position, the competition has moved between the position groups. Up until the Michigan State game, the linebacker core had a pretty tight hold on the top spot.

Redshirt freshman kicker Quinn Nordin has emerged as the gold standard for the unit so far this season.

Special teams coordinator Chris Partridge had to modify and rework the starters in the first few games, but it seems like the depth chart is now finalized.

Sophomore defensive end Rashan Gary and the Wolverines' defense is still looking to improve despite being the top-ranked defense in the nation.

Tuesday, Rashan Gary said that Don Brown emphasized how important it was for the defense to stick to its fundamentals — running to the ball, playing physical, making tackles.

Sophomore Chris Evans and the rest of the running backs have been working on tightening up ball security.

Still smarting from a 14-10 loss to Michigan State on Saturday night, Michigan set out to correct issues in its run game.

Sophomore defensive back Josh Metellus and the secondary have proven their ability, especially Saturday night.

After Saturday night, the secondary’s standing in the national ranks can no longer be chalked up to a case of facing mediocre passing threats either. Still, the Wolverines are now tasked with moving forward from an upset.

Fifth-year senior running back Ty Isaac fumbled in the first quarter, accounting for one of the Wolverines’ five turnovers.

The now-17th-ranked Wolverines lost their illustrious unbeaten status in a 14-10 loss to Michigan State. The Daily breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly from Saturday night’s game.
