The No. 15 Michigan Wolverines had to survive a scare last week against Akron. On Saturday the Wolverines will hope to avoid giving Connecticut a chance at an upset as they travel to Rentschler Field to take on the Huskies. ABC/ESPN3 will provide coverage of this game to select markets beginning at 8:00 pm ET. After three straight home games to open the season Michigan head coach Brady Hoke admitted he was a little worried about taking so many first year players on the road. “I think we should take a lot of nannies on this trip, or, what do they call them? Au pairs? We’ve got a lot of freshmen who have never been to a road game and we’ve got guys who redshirted last year, so the only time they traveled was to the bowl game.” MICHIGAN vs. UCONN W-L 3-0 0-2 Avg Points 42.7 19.5 Avg Points Allowed 21.0 32.5 Home Record 3-0 0-2 Road Record 0-0 0-0 Still Michigan should have no problem butting away Connecticut, but then again the same could be said about Akron last wee...

Act 2: Michigan Wolverines Survive @ Huskies

Last week in The Big House, Michigan was ambushed by a way overmatched and historically, well not that good, Akron Zips football team and Blue was very fortunate to have pulled out the 28-24 victory at home. Now, going on the road for the first time in 2013 to face a UConn Huskies team whom by many accounts was also considered to be not that good, left followers of the Maize and...

Pregame Final Five Thoughts: Michigan @ Connecticut

Hello Hokeamaniacs! After our scare last weekend in The Big House against Akron, I’m pretty sure that Hoke and his staff have been putting the team through the ringer in practice this week.

But tonight, the two teams appear to be pretty evenly matched in a great game at Rentschler Field. The Huskers had a 21-14 lead in the fourth quarter, but Michigan just stole all of the momentum with a serious interception off of Chandler Whitmer. Linebacker Desmond Morgan...

Michigan Football news, stats, stars from UConn win

Many people, myself included, expected Michigan would shake the dust off from last week’s closer than expected win and flex their muscle at the expense of the UConn Huskies. Instead the Wolverines turned ball over 4 times and had to scratch and claw their way to a 24-21 victory over Connecticut. The comedy of errors was reaching epic proportions early in the second half as the...

Hokeamaniac.com Poll: Harbaugh or Hoke?
