San Diego State Game Prediction

Ronnie Hillman

All week long, I’ve been writhing about this game. Heck, all offseason I’ve pointed to this game as one that scares the maize and blue blood out of me.

SDSU brings 2 top notch, potential NFL skill players to town in Ryan Lindley and Ronnie Hillman at QB and RB respectively, and they’re both very talented. If you look at the balance they have, the number of looks they’ll give you, its exactly what Michigan OC Al Borges wants Michigan to look like down the road.

The return of Michael Floyd ensures that Michigan secondary will be tested early and often. The game is likely to go down to the wire again but this time Michigan is unable to put out a victory
