A 3-0 start has been a pleasant surprise for No. 23
Michigan, but the Wolverines must now establish themselves in the Big Ten Conference, which starts Saturday at Noon ET when they host
Indiana fromMichigan Stadium.
The Wolverines have won all three games at home this season, most notably, 38-34 over Notre Dame in week two. Last week, the Wolverines topped
Eastern Michigan 45-17 behind 380 yards rushing as a team. Carlos Brown had 187 of those yards with two touchdowns, as he took the majority of the carries for Brandon Minor who is battling an ankle injury. Denard Robinson also had a pair of touchdown runs for the Wolverines, as Rich Rodriguez continues to mix Robinson in at quarterback with Tate Forcier, who has thrown for 487 yards and five touchdowns so far this season. Forcier also joins Brown, Robinson, and Minor with at least 100 yards rushing on the year.
The Wolverines face an unbeaten
Indiana team that is looking for its first 4-0 start since 1990 under third-year coach Bill Lynch. Narrow wins over Eastern Kentucky and Western Michigan were followed by a 38-21 win over
Akron last weekend.
