2015 Michigan gameday #4: vs. BYU

After a somewhat close loss to favored Utah, Michigan has won two straight at home against middling teams.  Now it gets another crack at the Beehive State with a noon bout against Brigham Young.  The Cougars are ranked #22 thanks to eye-opening wins wins at Nebraska and against Boise State, followed by a one-point loss at #10 UCLA--all that despite missing some of their best players including their starting QB.

Those absences have pushed the line more in the Wolverines' direction, and coupled with a tough away environment and talented opposing defense, BYU could have its hands full today.  A lot of that depends on Michigan getting its ground game going and finding out which version of Jake Rudock shows up.

A third straight win, especially one against a ranked team, could give Jim Harbaugh's squad the boost they need going into conference play.  Tune in to one of the day's more exciting games to find out if that's exactly what happens for the Maize and Blue!
