The main problem plaguing the Michigan running attack is poor blocking by the offensive line. Derrick Green had success against Northwestern, but results against Iowa and Ohio State will prove whether the Michigan running attack is truly fixed.
Can Green duplicate his performance versus Iowa and Ohio State?
Michigan’s season depends on it.
Michigan still hopes to win 10 games this season and desperately needed a victory after two consecutive losses.
The game was a victory, but the Michigan offense is still searching for ways to protect Gardner and consistently move the ball behind a lackluster offensive line.
With only two games remaining, including a season finale with Ohio State, those answers can’t come soon enough.
Michigan (6-3, 2-3 Big Ten) and Northwestern (4-5, 0-5 Big Ten) both enter this game stinging from narrow losses to the same Big Ten opponent. The Wildcats fell victim to a Hail Mary pass by Nebraska, while the Wolverines saw their 19-game home winning streak ended last week by the Cornhuskers.
