Greg Schiano discusses facing Michigan's 'two upper echelon' RBs in Week 10
Greg Schiano will have the tough task of shutting down the Michigan running game on Saturday. He talked about what makes it so difficult to handle.
The Wolverines are averaging 246 yards rushing per game this season. Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards are not an easy duo to stop on the ground. Corum and Edwards have combined for over 1,300 yards rushing in 2022.
Schiano believes that part of the reason why Michigan has a good running game is because of its offensive line. He explained that’s what makes the offense so hard to stop at Monday’s presser.
Why do they have a good running game? They have a very good offensive line. They have two really good backs, probably more, but two that play a lot, and a quarterback that can run and pass. So you have to defend the pass, you have to defend his run. The offensive line is doing a good job blocking. They have got two upper echelon running backs. So it’s one of the better outfits in America on offense. That’s why you look at where they are ranked in all those statistical categories that are up in the top.
We’ll see how the Rutgers defense adjusts to what Michigan does. Game time is at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday via BTN.
