Jehu Chesson (Photo Credit: Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports) Michigan Football will host Nebraska on Saturday at the Big House. Kick off is scheduled for 3:30 (EST) and the game will be televised on ABC. For a complete game preview click here: Nebraska at Michigan. For the staff picks, read on. Tyler Brochhagen follow Tyler on Twitter @TylerBrochhagen Tyler is 2-2 picking the results of Michigan games this year. After a dismal performance in the biggest game of the year so far, I really have no idea what to expect out of this Michigan team. I do know that they play much better at home than on the road however, so they will have that going for them tomorrow when they take on Nebraska in the Big House. The offense should have a much easier time moving the ball and putting up points. I think this will be an offensively dominated game, but in the end Michigan has more big plays. Michigan 41 Nebraska 31 Chad Godfrey follow Chad on Twitter @isportsChad Chad is 7-1 picking the results of Michigan games this year Michigan leads the all-time series vs Nebraska 4-3-1…West Corn State is 1-3 in Ann Arbor..each team has beaten the other at home since the Corn joined the Big Ten.  These are two average Big Ten teams…they are both right in the middle of the pack in total defense (Nebraska is 8th and Michigan is 5th) and in total offense (Corn is 4th and Michigan is 6th).  So what does this mean?…it usually comes down to turnovers right?….Nebraska is a -1 in 2013 and UM is a -2…wash…I think the special team advantage goes slightly to Nebraska as well as generating a pass rush…they have 22 sacks to UM’s 17…Corn QB Taylor Martinez will miss his last shot to play in Ann Arbor and HB Ameer Abdullah has mouthed off about how awful the fans are at Michigan…so that along with the notions that Michigan head coach Brady Hoke has only lost back to back games once in his Michigan tenure and he has yet to lose a home game push the Wolverines to the W here…it will be another scorefest though…Michigan beats West Corn State 34-28. Lucas Rains follow Lucas on Twitter @lucasrains Lucas is 4-2 picking the results of Michigan Football games this year Nebraska enters the game on a high, after a last second victory over Northwestern last week. Michigan comes in following getting dominated by Michigan State. Both teams have struggled to remain consistent this season, so this game has some added importance. Nebraska will look to build on last week’s win, while Michigan wants to forget about its loss to MSU. With the way Nebraska has struggled to defend the run, allowing 182.6 yards per game, I think the Wolverines have the advantage if they can run the ball effectively. I see this game turning into an offensive, high-scoring affair. I’ve got Michigan 38-28, although predicting this game is a crapshoot. Rob White follow Rob on Twitter @isportsRob Rob is 7-1 picking the results of Michigan games this year It should be therapeutic for the team to play this game and shake the dust from the MSU loss off their cleats. All eyes will, of course, be focused on the offensive line again. They have seemingly regressed throughout the season and have not held up long enough for Devin Gardner to make plays or for the highly criticized Al Borges to unleash the playbook. If the line can pave the way for at least some semblance of a running game, Michigan will win this game. On defense, maybe it’s time for Greg Mattison to dial up some blitzes and make things uncomfortable for Nebraska’s freshman QB, Tommy Armstrong. This is big for Michigan, they need to steady the ship and gain some positive momentum heading into the back-to-back road games, at Northwestern and Iowa, that follow this contest. I think the Wolverines will put together their most complete performance of the year and pick up a 31-17 victory.
