Things should be interesting in this game, as both teams have played comparable opponents and both have been rolling, especially on offense. Both teams have been very strong on defense as well, but that should change this week. Look for each teams to get beat for some big plays and each offense to be checked on occasion as well. This game should be high-scoring, however. Look for Michigan to maybe have a 2-to-1 edge in scoring, but the total to ultimately hit.
