No. 4 Bo Melton is a stud

Rutgers might not be known for having tons of impact players at the skill positions but Bo Melton is certainly a name that Michigan football fans need to know.

So far this season, Melton has 227 receiving yards on 20 receptions in three games, which is just under 80 per game, and last year against the Wolverines, he caught seven passes for 109 yards and a score.

He’s dangerous and Rutgers best hope for a game-breaking touchdown.

No. 5 Like Michigan, Scarlet Knights have zero giveaways

Anytime an offense can get through three games without turning the football over, it’s a really positive thing and that’s something both Michigan and Rutgers have in common.

Neither team’s starting quarterback has thrown an interception and there hasn’t been a lost fumble. It’s no wonder why Michigan and Rutgers are a combined 6-0.
