Game Preview

Rutgers is set to face Michigan for the first time since the 78-0 debacle last season. Rosters are different, circumstances have changed, and the Scarlet Knights have an opportunity to prove that they can compete against Michigan in the Big House. After back to back conference wins, the confidence level for Chris Ash’s team should be at an all-time high. The Wolverines are licking their wounds after being routed last week against Penn State. However, it’s homecoming in Ann Arbor and Michigan will be looking to take out their anger on Rutgers. This is a big test and hopefully another step in proving progress is occurring this season.
