Michigan offensive line continues upward trajectory
After a poor showing in the opening game of the season, Michigan has steadily built up momentum heading into this week's game against rival Michigan State.
The same can be said of the Wolverines offensive line.
“They’ve just been taking huge strides,” U-M tight end Jake Butt told the Detroit Free Press. “It helps too when you play together, and we’ve played some really good defensive lines, and Northwestern had the best (scoring defense) in the country. We still had great plays and had an easy time running the ball against them. It just helps with their confidence, and we’re starting to jell as a group.”
Head coach Jim Harbaugh identified center Graham Glasgow as the offensive player of the game against the Wildcats, and he gave guard Ben Braden a shoutout as well during his Monday press conference.
"The line play has been ascending," Harbaugh said.
