It’s a mid-west showdown on Saturday afternoon at the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Cincinnati Bears come to town to take on the Michigan Wolverines.
This is the first match up between the two teams in history, which is surprising with how close they are in terms of location.
The Cincinnati Bearcats hope to have a better season this year, after finishing last year with a 4-8 record and in fourth place in the American East conference.
They got off to a good start this year, but the game couldn’t really tell them much about their team. They beat the Austin Peay Governors by a final score of 26-14.
The Governors last year finished without recording a single win, so the Bearcats would really have liked to win that game by more, but the most important part is they are currently 1-0.
Quarterback Hayden Moore looked good against the Governors throwing for over 150 yards and three touchdowns. He also didn’t throw an interception which was big because he has really had issues with that over the last two years.
To win this game the Bearcats need to be the team that jumps out to the fast start. If they can get a lead early, they could pull the upset in this game.
They also need the defense to create turnovers. Michigan did have turnovers in week one, and the Bearcats need to make sure they can get some in this game too.
On the other side of this Michigan Wolverines who had an impressive win to kick off their season. They got off to a slow start against the Gators they scored 20 unanswered points to win 33-17.
Quarterback Wilton Speight had some really good moments in this game, and some really bad ones. He threw for 181 yards and one touchdowns.
But he also threw two interceptions, and both of them were really ugly and that needs to change quickly if the Wolverines want to compete for the playoffs.
Good thing for Speight though the Wolverines defense is special. They were excellent in week one only allowing three points total.
To win this game the Wolverines just can’t overlook the Bearcats. They are the better team but they can’t just take it for granted that they will win this game.
They need to come out strong, and put the Bearcats away early.

The better team in this match up is the Wolverines and it is going to show early. Speight will bounce back from his week one struggles and have an excellent game in this one.
