The Michigan Wolverines will start their climb back up the polls on Saturday when they host the Air Force Falcons. The Michigan offense will almost certainly have an easier time against Air Force's defense than they did Alabama's, but it's the Michigan defense that may be of some concern to Wolverines fans. That has less to do with Michigan's defense itself than the fact that the Falcons run the triple option, which the Wolverines will be concentrating on this week.
Vegas, though, does not share those concerns, as Michigan will enter the game as a three-touchdown favorite. The Falcons blanked the Idaho State Bengals in the first half of their Week 1 game before the Bengals put up 21 points in the second half in what was an eventual 45-21 victory by the Falcons. They finished the 2011 season with a 7-6 record.
Game time, TV channel: 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN2
Point spread: Michigan favored by 21 points
