The B1G is known for tough, rugged football with hard-nosed defenses. That is no different in 2021.

Michigan is among the B1G’s best and has one of the best defensive lines in the country. DE Aidan Hutchinson is a projected top draft pick in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.

According to PFF College, Michigan’s defensive line was graded as the best defensive line unit of the week with a grade of 90.0.

Here are the 4 highest graded according to PFF College from Week 6:

  • Michigan 90.0
  • Georgia 88.2
  • Oklahoma 88.2
  • Alabama 87.3

They shut out Nebraska in the first half, but Nebraska scored 29 points in the second half.

The Wolverines have held all of their other opponents under 20 points this season.

Michigan is 6-0 and the No. 8 team in the country, and primarily because of how well its vaunted defense has been playing.

The Wolverines still have 3 AP Top-25 opponents on their schedule all of them are inside the top 10. They are at No. 1o Michigan State at No. 7 Penn State and vs. No. 6 Ohio State.

Michigan is idle this week before they take on the Northwestern Wildcats at home.
