Army and Michigan started their 2019 campaigns off with wins.
Now, they’ll look to build off their victories when the two teams meet on Saturday afternoon in the Big House.
Army Black Knights
Army grabbed themselves a win, but it was far from easy.
The Black Knights got everything they could handle and then some as they found themselves tied with the Rice Owls as heavy favorites 7-7 in the 4th quarter. They sustained a late drive that eventually found the end zone as they captured their first win of the season.
Army’s program has really turned around in recent years as they have become a threat to a lot of teams.
The defense will have a tall task here, but they are up to the challenge. While Rice’s offense is much weaker than Michigan’s, they still have the momentum to build off of. The Black Knights held Rice to just 243 yards. Expect them to put together some creative blitz packages here as they know they need to get in the Michigan backfield.
The Black Knights are 7-0-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record in their last 8 tries.
This is a huge year for Michigan.
Not only are they expected to be a top the Big 10, they almost need to compete for a National Championship in order to take some heat off head coach Jim Harbaugh. Michigan has struggled in recent season under Harbaugh as they have been unable to defeat their Big 10 rivals.
Starting the year off on the right foot is huge here as they need to get themselves some momentum.
Michigan trounced Middle Tennessee State 40-21 in their season opener, but they do have a few things they need to clean up.
The Wolverines had 2 crucial turnovers near the end zone that allowed Middle Tennessee State to at least keep things relevant. The new look spread offense put up 453 yards as things have really changed with this Michigan team.
QB Shea Patterson finished 17 of 29 with 203 yards and three touchdowns in his spread offense debut.
The Wolverines are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games.
