The Michigan Wolverines and the Washington Huskies will revisit one of the quieter rivalries in college football at the Big House this weekend. Washington struggled in their home opener, while the Wolverines cruised to a victory.
HISTORY: These two programs have met four times in the Rose Bowl during the 80’s & 90’s. It’s been almost 20 years since these two schools have met, and Michigan leads the all-time series, 7-5.
The Washington Huskies got off to a rocky start this season. Washington hosted neighboring state Montana for their season opener, and after scoring on their opening drive, they were humbled by the FCS powerhouse. The Huskies failed to score for the rest of the game, and started their season with a 13-7 loss.
Dylan Morris moved the ball well through the air, but his untimely turnovers would ultimately cost Washington the game. The redshirt freshman went 27-46 for 226 yards and three costly interceptions. He did score on the ground, but he was sacked three times.
Richard Newton got the majority of the backfield touches and had a solid game against the Grizzlies. The sophomore back ran for 62 yards on 17 carries, and caught four passes.
Cade Otton is one of the best tight ends in the nation, and he led the Huskies with eight catches for 82 yards. Sophomore Taj Davis caught six passes for 59 yards in his first game for UW.
Despite the final result, the Huskies did defend well last weekend. They held Montana to less than 250 yards of total offense, and made them go 2-13 on third downs.
The Michigan Wolverines got off to a much better start than their opponents this weekend. Big Blue began the year by covering their spread with a 23-point win over in-state Western Michigan. They took a big lead into halftime, and would overwhelm the Broncos with their ground game en route to a 47-14 victory.
Junior quarterback Cade McNamara managed the first half well, and should be ready for a bigger test this weekend. He went 9-11 for 136 yards and two touchdowns.
Blake Corum matched his total from last year in the opener and seems poised to have a bigger role this season. He gained 111 yards on 14 carries, scored on the ground, and caught a 14-yard touchdown. RB2 Hassan Haskins gained 70 yards on 13 carries, and rumbled into the endzone as well.
Senior wideout Ronnie Bell caught and JSU transfer Daylen Baldwin both scored from 60+ yards out last weekend, and should be counted on for more this weekend.
After trading touchdowns on their opening possessions, Michigan held Western Michigan scoreless until the end of the fourth quarter, and they return one of the best defenses in the Big Ten.

College football is so historic. Reinvigorating classic rivalries always return good football. Both schools performed well defensively last week, but UW has a few questions to answer behind center.
4* Free Week 2 NCAA Betting Pick: Michigan -1.5
The Big House could be the ultimate factor here. Dylan Morris has started four games in his career, and he certainly hasn’t seen an environment like Ann Arbor on a Saturday night. Michigan looked strong on both sides of the ball, and if their defense can get stops and create turnovers, they will be able to lean on the run game. That will be the key to Big Blue’s success this season.
Take Michigan’s game spread, and view the first half spread as well, as they come out and grab the lead early in a hostile environment.
