ESPN's FPI predicts the winner of Michigan vs. Indiana
No. 4 Michigan takes on Indiana this week on the road. The Wolverines are looking like one of the top teams in the country while Indiana has quickly fallen off after a hot start.
Michigan, led by quarterback JJ McCarthy, has been plowing through its early competition. The Wolverines have put up 50 or more points in 3 of their games so far, though they haven’t faced many tests so far – just B1G opponents Maryland and Iowa.
Despite not having seen much competition early, Michigan has established itself as a top team through it’s dominant offense, and will look to prove itself further by cementing another B1G win on Saturday.
For the Hoosiers, they came out of the gate fast and the nation on standby as they jumped out to a 3-0 start with wins over Illinois, Idaho and Western Kentucky. Indiana was soon humbled however, losing its last two games to Cincinnati and Nebraska.
An upset over the Wolverines is improbable, but not impossible.
ESPN’s football power index gives Michigan a 91.9% chance of defeating the Hoosiers, but Indiana will no doubt come into the game looking the shock the nation in front of its home crowd.
The game at Memorial Stadium kicks off at noon on Saturday.
