One of Michigan’s biggest home games of the season will kick off at 7:30 PM this Saturday. The No. 12 ranked Wolverines will host the No. 15 ranked Wisconsin Badgers. Both teams are currently undefeated in the Big Ten and each hold only one loss this season.
This game will be one of the more challenging games the Wolverines have played since their tough loss against Notre Dame in the season opener. Michigan’s past four games have been wins against unranked teams. Saturday will be when the Wolverines’ schedule really picks up and Harbaugh will have the chance to prove he can win big games.
The Wolverine’s have been consistently starting slow this season. They trailed Northwestern 17-0 while on the road, and were led by Maryland in the first quarter last weekend. Michigan might not be able to continue this habit when looking at its next three games against talented, ranked teams.
Michigan’s quarterback Shea Patterson will be put up against Wisconsin’s junior quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Hornibrook has thrown for 963 yards this season, contributing to a career total of just under 5,000 yards. This should be a pretty even match up, considering Patterson’s stats are slightly more impressive with over 1,000 passing yards thrown to date.
Ann Arbor will host the 67th meeting between the Michigan Wolverines and the Wisconsin Badgers. It will be interesting to see if Harbaugh can win a big game on his home turf. Considering he is already on the hot seat, a win this weekend would be huge for him.
