Thanks to a Michigan State Spartans loss last weekend, the Michigan Wolverines are now alive again in the Big 10 title race. The Wolverines, of course, lost to the Spartans in thriller fashion. Now, everyone is chasing the Ohio State Buckeyes once again.
Luckily for the Wolverines, who are just one game back in the conference title race, they will play Ohio State in the final regular season game of 2015. Before they get to that game, though, they must take on the Indiana Hoosiers this weekend, and the Penn State Nittany Lions in the following game.
Although the Hoosiers entered Big 10 play with some hype, they have since lost five games in a row. Sadly, all five of those losses have come against Big Ten foes. For all it’s worth, Indiana will play the Maryland Terrapins and Purdue Boilermakers to close out the season.
If the Hoosiers plan on becoming bowl eligible, they have to win two out of their last three games, which is actually possible. Maryland and Purdue have a combined one win in the Big 10 this year.
Traveling on the road for Michigan won’t do it any favors, but the Wolverines are coming off of a 49-16 victory. The Wolverines could still be the best team in the conference as well. Their only conference loss was because of a miracle play.
Nonetheless, things are about to get really exciting in this conference.
PREDICTION: Wolverines 21, Hoosiers 3
