Michigan DB Dax Hill says team struggling to translate success at practice to game day
Their second-straight loss, the No. 23 Michigan Wolverines fell to the No. 13 Indiana Hoosiers, 38-21, on Saturday at Bloomington’s Memorial Stadium.
The loss snapped a 24-game win streak over the Hoosiers for the Wolverines, which dated to 1987.
Now standing at 1-2, standout sophomore safety Dax Hill said, despite the on-field disappointments the last two weeks, Michigan has been performing well in practice.
Dax Hill says team — defense, namely — does well in practice. UM "just has to do it in the game."

A five-star prospect and the top player at the position in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports Composite, Hill, a Tulsa, Oklahoma native and the brother of former Oklahoma State Cowboys tailback Justice Hill, has taken a major jump in his second year at the collegiate level, establishing himself as, likely, the Wolverines’ best defensive back.
He finished as Michigan’s third-leading tackler on Saturday with seven stops, tied with redshirt sophomore linebacker Cameron McGrone.
The Wolverines have another tough task ahead of them on November 14, when they are scheduled to welcome in the No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
