No. 4 Michigan (9–1) hosts Indiana (5–5) at the Big House on Saturday clinging to hope for a College Football Playoff bid.
After a shock loss to Iowa last week, the Wolverines can ill-afford a second defeat, with rival Ohio State on tap next weekend in a game that should decide the division, advancing the winner to the conference championship game and onward. Before that happens, Michigan must avoid another upset as they take on the Hoosiers. Indiana comes off a loss to Penn State and in need of one win in its final two games for bowl eligibility.
