Pregame, 11:34 a.m.: There’s a couple of special visitors in Michigan Stadium today:
Four plays later, Air Pressure converts on 4th lower on Arion Worthman’s short term, but Jim Harbaugh elects to challenge the place. The ruling in the game stands, and Michigan loses a timeout.
Michigan hosts Air Pressure in the final nonconference game at noon ET Saturday, and also the No. 7 Wolverines (2-) will face probably the most unique offenses attending college football: Air Force’s triple-option offense, which depends on misdirection around it will running the ball.
Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown continues to be speaking about get yourself ready for Air Pressure and it is flex-bone offense since before spring practices started. His wait has ended because the Wolverines undertake the Falcons the very first time since 2012 once they needed Denard Robinson’s 426 yards of total offense and 4 touchdowns (two by air, two by ground) along with a late defensive pause and take out a 31-25 victory.

Some, however, believe Michigan needs to address offensive problems with its very own. Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight has had the brunt from the scrutiny directed for the Wolverines, even though he’s averaging 201 yards passing a game title and it has been intercepted two times — both occasions in Michigan’s 33-17 win Sept. 2 against Florida. Speight has completed 51.9 % of his passes, however for the groundwork of comparison, four Big Ten quarterbacks have finished greater than 60 % of the passes within their first couple of games.
