Michigan Players To Watch:

Offense: Running Back – Donovan Edwards – Junior

Edwards has struggled to get going this season, averaging only 29.5 yards a game on the ground and 21.3 yards a game receiving. Last season, in 11 games, he averaged 90.1 yards a play on the ground, which is a far cry from this season. This week, he faced the ninth-ranked rush defense in the Big Ten, which bodes well for him to have a get-right game against Indiana.

Defense: EDGE – Josaiah Stewart – Junior

Stewart has broken out of the last two weeks, recording two sacks against Nebraska two weeks ago and then a sack last weekend against Minnesota. He has recorded eight total tackles in those two games. This week will be a good week for him to continue his trend, as he can get pressure on the quarterback and make things tough for the Hoosiers in the running game.

Bottom Line: Michigan looks to stay unbeaten

Michigan is returning home for the first time since September 23 as they will take on Indiana, and they will look to pick up their sixth win of the season in a game that heading in looks to end up being much like last week’s game. Last week against Minnesota, the Wolverines allowed the most points they have allowed in a single game this season with ten; look for the defense to be fired up to let that happen again as they look to continue their dominance of the Big Ten.
