We are about 24 hours away from Michigan football vs. Minnesota. Here are five predictions for the Wolverines, as well as a score prediction.
Michigan football is back on the road Saturday night and the Minnesota Golden Gophers are the next opponent.
The Gophers are 3-2 this season and 1-1 in the Big Ten. They beat Nebraska on a last-second field goal and also dropped a game to Northwestern that they led by 17.
Say what you will about P.J. Fleck, his teams are tough and well-coached. They tend to win the turnover battle, which is why they have won so many games.
This could be the tough game many expected against Nebraska a week ago. The Wolverines are a 19.5-point favorite but I don’t expect a pushover.
Here are five predictions for Michigan football vs. Minnesota.
Blake Corum runs for 100 yards
The Michigan football running back has been getting each and every week. He’s one touchdown behind Mike Hart in Michigan football history and two behind Denard Robinson.
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Corum passed Hart and tied Shoelace on Saturday night. Minnesota is only allowing 127 rushing yards per game, but the Gophers are giving up 4.2 yards per carry.
The pass defense isn’t great either, but Michigan football loves to ground and pound. The Wolverines’ offensive line found its mojo last week and the coaching staff rides Corum to 100 yards and two touchdowns.
Kalel Mullings and Donovan Edwards will have solid games too, but this feels like it could be a 20-carry night for Corum. — just a feeling I have.
