Jim Harbaugh and Michigan are heading into the toughest challenge of the young season in Week 4.
Michigan is 2-0 and coming off a bye week with a trip to Madison, Wisconsin on tap this week. On the other side of the football, the Badgers also enter the contest undefeated and coming off a bye. Unfortunately for Michigan, Wisconsin gets this game at home in Camp Randall Stadium.
Everyone is well aware of the challenges presented by taking on the Badgers on the road. Wisconsin traditionally features a stout defense and strong running game, and that is definitely the case this year. Add in the home field advantage and Week 4 will be a challenge for the Wolverines.
No one is more aware of the challenge at hand than Harbaugh. He lost his lone trip to Camp Randall Stadium with the Wolverines in 2017. When discussing the upcoming road trip on his Monday radio show, Harbaugh admitted that it is a tall task ahead of the team.
Aaron McMann with MLive shared Harbaugh’s comments:
Harbaugh calls winning at Camp-Randall Stadium "a tall task," cites Michigan's four-game losing skid in Madison.
