Bold Prediction #1: UMASS Offense will get going in Ann ArborSure UMASS only scored 6 points in two weeks in their inaugural FBS season and they are only scoring three points per game (124th in the nation), but the Minutemen can only improve right?I’m not completely sold on Michigan’s defense as their pass defense is very shaky. UMASS runs a no huddle offense and was able to pass for 151 yards against Indiana last week, so I expect quarterback Mike Wegzyn to double that number against Michigan. Here is my stat line for Wegzyn: 27/40, 285 yards. Bold Prediction #2: Michigan Offense WILL really get going The Wolverines need their offense to improve this week as this will be the last tune up game before the battle with Notre Dame and when Big 10 play opens up in two weeks against Purdue.Denard Robinson was superb last week scoring four touchdowns including runs of 79 and 58 yards. That day, he ran for 218 yards and threw for 208.UMASS' tale

Looking to fill a few roster spots to help round out his team he tapped two shooting guards from nearby Indiana.

With 6 touchdowns and 42 points on the board before the half, more than a few of the 110,708 found little reason to return to their seats. UMass probably felt the same.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- One of the reasons that Michigan started the season as a top-10 team and a favorite for the Big Ten championship game is the number of weapons they had on offense.
So far, much of that weaponry has been missing in action.
Thanks to Denard Robinson and some unexpected receivers, it hasn't hurt Michigan's record.
