Staff Predictions: Week Five

Michigan goes on the road for the first time of the year with a 12:00 tilt against Northwestern later in the afternoon. As the game approaches, the staff at GBW gives predictions on how the Wolverines will fare later on this afternoon. Will the Wolverines be able to hold off a Northwestern team that has struggled over the past two weeks?

The Wolverines continue to fight towards a Big 10 Championship this weekend as they go on the road for the first time of the season to take on the Northwestern Wildcats. What do the staff at GoBlueWolverine Magazine see in the cards for the Maize and Blue this afternoon?

With the assumptions of: Say "Yes" to mostly-Mallett, "No" to Tyrell Sutton ... plugging this data into the computer ... whrrrrrr ... zero NW defense, zero NW offense ... the computer can't divide by zero - DARN. Its up to me to guess ...
Michigan 28, Northwestern 6.

Yes, Northwestern runs the spread, but no they do not have the dynamic threats at quarterback or receiver that gave Michigan fits in the first two contests of the season. Without Tyrell Sutton in thebackfield, the Wildcats are virtually inept. Look for an imprved Michigan defense to conintue to gain confidence against a club that lost 58-7 to Ohio State last week and was the team that let Duke end it's 22 game losing streak the week prior.
Michigan 40, Northwestern 14

Is the Ohio State offense that much more affective than the Michigan offense? Northwestern struggled to stop Ohio State in all aspects of the game last week, and I expect to see the same this week.
