The Wolverines have found plenty of success on the ground through two games with fifth-year senior Ty Isaac, who has put together back-to-back 100-yard outings with 7.9 yards per carry. Michigan has a size advantage over the Falcons, who run an odd-man front (272 pounds per player) with four linebackers who are active and pursue to the football. The Falcons have 10 new starters on a defense that has only been tested by Virginia Military Institute — one of the worst teams in the FCS over the past four years.
The Wolverines need to play a sharper, cleaner game than we saw last week against Cincinnati and that starts with Wilton Speight. To expect perfection would be unrealistic, but fans are itching to see signs he can hold down at fort at quarterback like he is expected to. Air Force lost a slew of starters off last year’s team, but Troy Calhoun’s program always seems to keep churning.
The Wolverines have to prove they can pass the ball because returning starter Wilton Speight simply struggled in the first two games. The Falcons may have an opportunity, potentially at least, to beat their highest-ranked opponent since beating No. 6 Stanford in 1970.
