Aaron Murray believes Michigan has closed the talent gap against Ohio State and others, and combined with confidence, the Wolverines have what it takes to deliver in a big game against the likes of the Buckeyes, Georgia and Alabama.

“This is going to be Michigan’s best team,” Murray said. “This has been a good team, but Ohio State has been more talented, Georgia’s been more talented, Alabama’s been more talented. They’re still going to be more talented this year, but that gap that was here has shrunken in half, if not more.”

Michigan’s confidence comes from being in the College Football Playoff for 2 straight years.

Murray believes Michigan is, “more suited now than ever to actually go win a game in a Playoff situation and compete for a national championship.”
