Michigan’s defense has not allowed a point to be scored by the opponent in their last 3 games.
The spotlight will be on Spartans QB Connor Cook who will have to put in a solid game, and crack this Michigan defense in order to get the win. Both teams will be playing with tons of emotion, but the Wolverines defense hasn’t needed emotion to keep teams scoreless.
Michigan looks to continue the 5 game win streak they have going right now, as well as keep up the hard work on defense. 5 of the 6 teams to play against Michigan have not scored more than 7 points. The only team who has, beat them by 7. (Utah)
