Today the Wolverines host the Badgers at the Big House in Ann Arbor.
It is promising to be perfect football weather, sunny and low to mid 40’s conditions that are optimum for an upset here in A2.
This will be the 64th meeting between Michigan and
Wisconsin. The Wolverines hold a 49-13-1 lead in the all-time
series and have a 22-5 record in games played at
Michigan Stadium (27-6 all-time in Ann Arbor). U-M has
claimed victories in 17 of the last 22 games and 31 of the
last 37 matchups, including three straight home games.
With the season winding down Michigan can look back at a mixed bag. Looking at a 7-3 overall record and 3-3 in the Big Ten, will this be enough to assuage the fans uneasiness that has surrounded the Rodriguez program. Certainly another win would help ease everyone’s mind.
It will not be easy.
Wisconsin is good, and they are ranked #6 as a result. We have the home field advantage and we may need every advantage we can get today to pull out a win… and yet I think its possible.
I have said it before, and I will say it again: what makes college football so exciting it that anything can happen.
We will have to play almost flawless football, and get a few breaks that go our way but we have a better chance here the next week away at Ohio.
I really hope for a good contest, and today seems to be a good day for an underdog win!
