Michigan football makes point-spread history ahead of Week 3 bout versus UConn
Michigan football, rightly so, is currently a 46-point favorite over UConn Saturday. That’s an insane number, but its nothing new to the Wolverines this season.
The Wolverines have opened as at least 31-point favorites over their first 3 FBS opponents of the season for just the second time in NCAA history, joining 2001 Florida.

This is a double-edged sword. For one, the Wolverines are one of the best teams in the nation this season and deserve the acclaim. For another, Colorado State, Hawai’i and UConn aren’t exactly stout competition.
But so what? You still have to get out there and get it done. The Wolverines have outscored opponents 107-17 to start the season.
They’ll increase that number Saturday.
