The Michigan Wolverines look to pick up the first win in the Jim Harbaugh era in college football Saturday when they host the Oregon State Beavers. The game is scheduled for a 12:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ABC. Currently the betting odds for the game have the Wolverines listed as solid favorites to pick up the victory in this one.
The Harbaugh-led Wolverines fell on the road at Utah last week, now they look for the first win of the new regime. Michigan is hosting a Pac-12 school in Oregon State, a young squad looking for its footing early in the year. The Beavers beat Weber State 26-7 in last week’s contest after only leading 6-0 at halftime.
Oregon State has a nice dual-threat quarterback in freshman Seth Collins, he threw for only 92 yards and two scores last week but also posted 152 yards on the ground with 17 carries. The Wolverines will have to be stout defensively in order to keep Collins from having a big game.
Michigan owns a 4-0 record all-time against Oregon State, but the last game happened in 1986. Oregon State has won three straight road openers and under new head coach Gary Andersen they will be a solid football team, but this week will be tough.
Coming across the country to play in a 9 a.m. local kickoff time will be taxing on the Oregon State team and Michigan is looking to get it figured out. Jake Rudock will keep the Wolverines from turning it over, Michigan will be solid offensively and they cruise to a three-score win on an emotional day in Ann Arbor.
