Once again there won't be any major prospects on campus for this game, so the preview will once again focus on the actual football, what a shame! Sidenote: Getting early commitments is great, but it really does kill recruiting in the fall, there's virtually nothing to talk about!
Anyway, onto SDSU!
In my preseason prediction, I had this down as a win, and whilst Michigan hasn't really impressed in my eyes, I don't see any reason to change this forecast. I will say though, that it should be a very close game, especially if Michigan gets yet another slow start on both sides of the ball.
SDSU has a good QB and RB, so I'm expecting them to put up a lot of points, probably over 25; with most of them coming in the first half. Their defense however, is not so good, and Michigan should be able to move the ball quite easily against Rocky Long's 3-3-5, especially on the ground.
Michigan's defense should get better as the game goes on and hopefully they will be able to pressurize Ryan Lindley into some mistakes. I think Michigan wins the turnover battle, and eventually moves the ball with ease on the ground, eating up some clock in the 4th quarter to see out the win.
Prediction: Michigan 38: SDSU 28
Ohh, and don't forget to cheer for Missouri, because if they knock Oklahoma off the top spot it could really help us with Zach Banner and Jordan Payton, both of whom are visiting the sooners this weekend.
