Michigan Wolverines vs. Indiana Hoosiers: Preview, Start Time, TV


Indiana University heads for Ann Arbor on Saturday for their match-up with the Michigan Wolverines at 3:30 p.m. on the BTN.

When: Saturday, November 1, 2014 – 3:30 p.m./ET

Where: Michigan Stadium – Ann Arbor, Michigan

TV: BTN (Big Ten Network)

The Michigan Wolverines will take field at the Big House on Saturday looking not only to move on from yet another demoralizing loss at the hands of the Michigan State Spartans last week, but also from the drama of the Dave Brandon resignation on Friday.

Can the Wolverines rebound against the Hoosiers?

One thing that can be said about this 2014 Michigan Wolverines squad is that they haven’t given up, despite battling great adversity all season long. The effort is there, now they just need to execute.

It’s likely that the Wolverines will have an easier time with the Indiana defense than it had against the Spartans defense last week. On the other hand though, the Michigan defense will likely have it’s hands full against the Hoosiers. Particularly, running back Tevin Coleman.

Coleman’s streak of consecutive games with a rushing touchdown was brought to an end at 15, but his 100+ yard game streak is still on the rise. His performance against MSU made him the first back to break the century mark against the Spartans’ defense since the 2013 Big Ten Championship game.

It will also be interesting to see what the attendance will be like now that Brandon is no longer calling the athletic shots in Ann Arbor. Michigan’s streak of more than 250 consecutive crowds of at least 100,000 began against Indiana in 1975, hopefully it doesn’t come to an end on Saturday.

It could come down to the quarterbacks

This Big Ten match-up may ultimately come down to the play of the teams two quarterbacks. The Michigan Wolverines of course have Devin Gardner under center this week, while the Indiana Hoosiers will continue to start back-up QB, Zander Diamont. Gardner appears to be the better of the two, but his play as of late has been suspect to say the least.

Michigan won 63-47 last year.
