Michigan will travel to Minnesota as a 12.5-point favorite when they face the Golden Gophers this Saturday at noon ET on the Big Ten Network.
Michigan is looking to bounce back after a 23-9 loss to Nebraska last Saturday. The Wolverines were without starting quarterback Denard Robinson for the entire second half, after he aggravated a nerve in his right elbow. Robinson is listed as questionable for this Saturday, but head coach Brady Hoke said he expects him to play.
Michigan is 5-3 on the season overall and 3-1 in the Big Ten. The Wolverines are in second place behind Nebraska in the Big Ten Legends Division, as the Cornhuskers own the tiebreak over Michigan.
Minnesota opened conference play by losing three straight games but are coming off their first Big Ten win of the season, as they defeated Purdue, 44-28, last Saturday.
Michigan beat Minnesota, 58-0, in 2011. Robinson had two passing and one rushing touchdown in the game.
