Nebraska came into Saturday’s game with the top rushing offense in the Big Ten. However, it was clear that Michigan has the best-rushing offense and defense in the Big Ten.
While the Michigan offensive line was able to move the Huskers’ defensive line where it wanted, Nebraska wasn’t able to do the same thing. There was no moving Kenneth Grant, Kris Jenkins, and Rayshaun Benny who has filled in just fine for Mason Graham.
Michigan football had four sacks in the win and outside of the 74-yard touchdown allowed in the last few minutes, Nebraska had 32 yards on 20 carries and barely more than 200 total yards.
Nebraska was able to put together a couple of drives, and the Huskers aren’t Penn State or Ohio State. Still, the Wolverines put together exactly the kind of performance you would expect.
They have allowed 30 points in five games and haven’t surrendered more than seven points in a single game so far this season.
