Nobody entering the Big House this Saturday will expect the electricity we witnessed in UTL2. Akron enters on a 27 game road losing streak, and in spite of them squeaking by James Madison at home last weekend, this game should get ugly early. I had initially written a breakdown of what to expect when Michigan had the ball and vice versa, and I could go into position by position breakdowns but frankly they just don’t matter this week (and next, quite). Michigan will score plenty, Akron will not.
The key this week is getting out healthy, and healing those with "boo-boos" from ND along with getting key backups meaningful snaps. There is a ton of quality underclassmen on this team, and many will be called upon in the B1G season. The next two games will afford the experience needed to make a run.
