UMass Vs. Michigan 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

The Michigan Wolverines are installed as huge favorites against the UMass Minutemen Saturday in Ann Arbor. So this game should afford the Wolverines an opportunity to get a look at some players deeper in their depth chart while Michigan chalks up another win on their schedule.

Michigan is No. 17 in the nation and concludes a two-game homestand with Saturday's game, before a big non-conference tilt at Notre Dame and then the start of the Big Ten season. So it will be easy to look past this game, despite the downplaying of the 45.5-point spread by the Wolverines, they are favored to win over 0-2 UMass.

UMass lost only 42-37 to Michigan two years ago at the Big House.

Everything for Michigan starts with quarterback Denard Robinson, who has scored six total touchdowns in two games and also leads the team in passing (408 yards) and rushing (245 yards). But this could be the week the Wolverines try to get running back Fitzgerald Toussaint rolling after a one-game suspension and a pretty unproductive game against Air Force last week.

UMass running back Michael Cox is a former Michigan player who transferred to the school in his home state after getting few opportunities to play in Ann Arbor. UMass has six points of offense in two games.

TV: Big Ten Network

Time: 3:30 p.m. ET.

Odds: Michigan -45.5
