Michigan's defense won't be without one of it's strongest defenders Saturday against Indiana.

Senior safety Delano Hill exited the Wolverine's stunning 14-13 loss at Iowa Saturday night late in the second half but is expected to be ready to play at home against Indiana this week.

"Delano should be fine," Smith said. "He just left the game at the end there but he's doing well and he should be good to go this week."

Hill recorded four tackles, including a tackle for loss and a pass break-up, helping Michigan's defense allow just 12-points to the Hawkeyes.

Scoring at least 31-points in each of the last three games, Indiana's offense comes to Ann Arbor ready to test Michigan's defense.

Employing a bit of a two quarterback system with Richard Lagow the primary passer and Zander Diamont a rushing threat, the Hoosiers present a new challenge for the Wolverines.

"They've got a good offense," Smith said. "They've got one of the best receiver cores we'll face so far. Quarterback's got a strong arm, he can throw it deep, make all the throws. 

"It's really about their tempo and the different things they do schematically that can pose problems so we've got to be ready for it."
