The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are set to visit Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan for a Big Ten clash against the Michigan Wolverines. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights come into this matchup with a 1-2 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent home game against the Boston College Eagles, 30-16. QB Artur Sitkowski had a solid game through the air for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights as he threw for 304 yards, 1 TD, and 1 interception. RB Raheem Blackshear had a big game out of the backfield for the Scarlet Knights as he hauled in 9 catches for 130 yards and a TD.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Boston College Eagles as they allowed 30 points and a total of 431 yards on offense. Junior LB Tyshon Fogg led the way for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights with 12 tackles. Sophomore DB Avery Young was able to get into the Boston College backfield a handful of times as he contributed 9 tackles and 2 TFL. The Scarlet Knights were unable to force a turnover against Boston College which will need to change moving forward.

The Michigan Wolverines come into this matchup with a 2-1 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Wisconsin Badgers, 35-14. QB Shea Patterson struggled to get much going for the Michigan Wolverines as he only completed 14 of his 32 pass attempts for 219 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 interception. WR Ronnie Bell was able to lead the way for the Wolverines with 81 receiving yards.

The Michigan Wolverines struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Wisconsin Badgers as they allowed 35 points and a total of 487 yards on offense. Senior LB Khaleke Hudson was able to lead the way for the Michigan Wolverines with 14 tackles and a sack. Sophomore DL Aidan Hutchinson was able to have a productive game for the Wolverines as he contributed 9 tackles while also pitching in a pass deflection.

The Michigan Wolverines are coming off an embarrassing loss on national TV against the Wisconsin Badgers, and they have the perfect chance to redeem themselves with a win against the lowly Rutgers program. The Wolverines have a former 5-star QB in Shea Patterson, but he has failed to live up to those expectations thus far which means he can be in for a big one against a struggling defense. The major mismatch in this game will be the Rutgers offense trying to generate anything against a traditionally good Michigan defense. The Wolverines will be hungry to redeem themselves after last week’s struggles, and they will do so in blowout fashion. Final Score Prediction, Michigan Wolverines win and cover ATS 49-7.
