Unbeaten Michigan, Led by Top Defense, Is Huskers Challenge Saturday

Nebraska will host No. 2 Michigan in college football on Saturday. 

The Wolverines come to Lincoln with a 4-0 record, including a 1-0 Big Ten mark following last week’s 31-7 victory over Rutgers in Ann Arbor. 

Michigan leads the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 5.8 points per game.  The Wolverines are third in total defense, giving up 231 yards per contest.  Coach Jim Harbaugh’s team will be playing its first road game of the year against Nebraska’s vastly improved defense in coach Matt Rhule’s first season. 

Michigan hammered the Huskers 34-3 last year but escaped with a 32-29 win at Lincoln in 2021. 

Saturday’s kickoff is at 2:30 p.m.  The pregame begins at 10:30 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK and at 2 p.m. on 93.5 The Hawk.
