Michigan is off to a tremendous start to its 2016 season, putting together a 7-0 start in Jim Harbaugh’s second year as head coach. He has turned the program around faster than anyone had thought possible.
Wilton Speight might be a serviceable quarterback for the Wolverines and doesn’t make many mistakes, but he has one of the best defenses and run games in the country to back him up.
In fact, the Wolverines have the top overall defense in the nation to go along with a ground game that averages over 250 yards per game. Freshman Chris Evans leads the way with 416 yards and three scores on 8.3 yards per touch.
Michigan State, on the other hand, has struggled just one year after making a College Football Playoff appearance. Mark Dantonio’s Spartans are just 2-5 to start the season after five consecutive losses. Will they pull off the major upset this week at home?
The quarterback situation has been one of the major problems for the Spartans as well as a lack of senior leadership. Tyler O’Connor began the season as the starter, but redshirt freshman Brian Lewerke has taken over for the past two games. Saturday’s starter is a game-time decision.
LJ Scott leads all running backs with 464 yards and three touchdowns on 5.0 yards per carry while Gerald Holmes has been splitting carries. R.J. Shelton has also been a star on offense, leading the team with 35 catches for 541 yards and four scores.
Michigan comes into the game as huge favorites, but the Spartans usually play well as underdogs. Who will come out on top of this big rivalry?
