3. The pass rush has a day
I don’t see Indiana having much success running the ball. Minnesota had some last week in the first half, but that’s one reason I think the Wolverines will be better in that area against Indiana.
Things were tightened up and I really don’t see Indiana being able to establish much on the ground. That will put the onus offensively on quarterback Tayven Jackson.
Jackson does have talent. He also completed 24-of-34 passes for 299 yards and a touchdown against Louisville. So there is upside. The Wolverines have given up long touchdown passes in two of the past three weeks so that is something to watch.
Cam Camper is also a talented wideout. He’s 6-foot-2 and is averaging 19.2 yards per reception for the Hoosiers this season.
However, he’ll probably get covered by Will Johnson and all the throwing Indiana will do, will lead to a productive day for the pass rush. The Hoosiers have allowed just eight sacks through five games, but I see Michigan football getting at least four on Saturday.
