Michigan-Indiana, 3 keys to game

1. Hold on to the ball
That’s something Michigan did not do against MSU. The Wolverines lost 2 fumbles, 1 by running back Ty Isaac and 1 by tight end Sean McKeon, in the first half that stymied potential scoring drives. Then, quarterback John O’Korn threw interceptions on three consecutive drives in the second half after the deficit had been cut to 4 points. The fact that the Wolverines still had a shot to win the game in the final seconds was a testament to how well the defense played. They are now minus-5 in turnover margin this season and have allowed 34 points off 12 giveaways. Indiana has a turnover margin of minus-7 and has allowed 38 points off 11 giveaways. The Hoosiers have just 4 takeaways on defense. The Wolverines can’t afford to give them extra possessions.
2. Toughen up
The message is to forget about last week. Forget about the loss to MSU. Focus on the week of practice and getting a win on the road. Indiana has long been on the lower half of the Big Ten, but the Hoosiers have been to bowl games each of the last two seasons and first-year coach Tom Allen is trying to build upon that success. This is not a team that will roll over for Michigan. The Wolverines have a big test next week at Penn State, but if they want to continue as contenders for the Big Ten East title, they can’t look ahead.
3. Be prepared for Indiana’s passing attack
Indiana was high-octane up-tempo under former head coach Kevin Wilson. The pace has slowed a bit under Allen, the former defensive coordinator, and new offensive coordinator Mike DeBord, but this offense’s strength is still in the passing game. Redshirt freshman Peyton Ramsey made his first career start last week against Charleston Southern. Granted, it was against a FCS opponent, but Ramsey threw for 321 yards and 2 touchdowns in the victory. He’s played in all five games this season, throwing 6 touchdowns against just 2 interceptions. Indiana has had 13 passing plays of 20 yards or more, including 5 for touchdowns, and it is averaging nearly 260 yards passing per game. The Wolverines are allowing just 213 total yards per game, the lowest total in the country. They are second in passing yards allowed [126 yards] per game and holding opponents to an 89.86 passer efficiency rating, the fourth-best mark in the nation.
