The Line: Indiana Hoosiers +12 -- Over/Under:
The Michigan Wolverines and Indiana Hoosiers meet Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
The Michigan Wolverines look for their third road win and to remain in the Big Ten East race. Jake Rudock is completing 62.8 percent of his passes for 1,780 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Rudock has three touchdown passes in his last two games. Amara Darboh and Jake Butt have combined for 876 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Jehu Chesson has 23 receptions. The Michigan Wolverines ground game is averaging 171.8 yards per contest, and De'Veon Smith leads the way with 524 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Michigan is allowing 11.9 points and 240 yards per game. Desmond Morgan leads the Wolverines with 57 tackles, Jeremy Clark has three interceptions and Willie Henry has six sacks. Drake Harris, Mario Ojemudia and Ty Isaac are questionable.
The Indiana Hoosiers need this big win in order to snap a five-game losing streak. Nate Sudfeld is completing 60.1 percent of his passes for 2,229 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. Sudfeld has eight touchdown passes in his last three games. Ricky Jones and Simmie Cobbs Jr. have combined for 1,260 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Mitchell Paige has 33 receptions. The Indiana Hoosiers ground game is averaging 185.7 yards per contest, and Jordan Howard leads the way with 961 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Indiana is allowing 37 points and 504 yards per game. Marcus Oliver leads the Hoosiers with 79 tackles, Jonathan Crawford has two interceptions and Nick Mangieri has seven sacks. Zander Diamont and Isaac James are questionable.
The Wolverines are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in November and 12-27-1 ATS in their last 40 road games. The Hoosiers are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Wolverines are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
Michigan has had trouble on the road, as the Wolverines lost to Utah and beat Minnesota by just three points. Indiana is no joke offensively and was able to take a great defensive Iowa team down to the last quarter. I like the Hoosiers and the points, as this should be a battle.
