EVANSTON, Ill. — No. 12 Michigan is hitting the road for the first time this season, putting its perfect record on the line Saturday night at Northwestern.
The Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) are coming off three straight lopsided wins, pounding Eastern Michigan (31-3), San Diego State (28-7) and Minnesota (58-0) and jumping seven spots in the most recent poll.
The Wildcats might (2-2, 0-1) be shaking off losses at Army and Illinois, but they also have quarterback Dan Persa back after he missed the first three games while recuperating from a ruptured right Achilles tendon.
He will test a much-improved Michigan defense that is allowing only 10.2 points per game, down from 35 last season.
