After getting clobbered by Alabama, Michigan will hope to get things turned around at home against Air Force.

Following an ugly 41-14 loss against Alabama on Saturday night, Michigan is back home this week for its first game at Michigan Stadium this season. The Wolverines will take on the Air Force Falcons in their home opener, and they will be hoping for a much different result than what happened against the Crimson Tide.

Air Force enters Saturday's game against Michigan coming off of a 49-21 win over Idaho State. The Falcons won with ease and racked up an astounding 484 rushing yards and 626 total yards. Air Force's triple-option attack will present a unique challenge for Michigan, which surrendered 232 rushing yards against Alabama.

Saturday's game at the Big House between Michigan and Alabama will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET. The game can be seen on ABC or ESPN2 depending on where you live.
