Going out on the town tonight, so God knows what time I'll wake up tomorrow; better do the prediction tonight whilst I'm in a clear state of mind!
Minnesota just lost to an FCS team, which is obviously embarrassing, but I don't actually think they'll be that bad tomorrow. I think they could actually put up a decent amount of yards, but just not that many points. UM's defense has been good at forcing turnovers, and they'll be looking to continue that trend with 2-3 tomorrow.
On offense, Michigan should be able to get the passing game going against what is a suspect secondary that even has injuries! I hope Michigan come out throwing short passes, to build up Denard's confidence and also to surprise the Minnesota defense, which is no doubt expecting 70% run plays.
Overall Michigan should lead this game from the start and gradually extend their lead to 15-20 points by the fourth quarter, where we'll hopefully see some of the backups get a chance.
Prediction: Michigan 42; Minnesota 17
