Michigan (10-2) vs FSU (9-3)


The first premiere matchup with a top ten team in the Bowl Season offers Michigan versus Florida State. Both teams expected to be in the playoffs this year but only Michigan was able to remain in the hunt late into the season. Two high profile teams with high profile coaches and highly valued draft prospects should make this an interesting game.


When Michigan Has The Ball: Wilton Speight to Jake Butt has been the Wolverines best play all year. It’s always there when they need it. While the Wolverines have 4 runners with over 400 yards they have none with 1000 yards. FSU’s defense is no joke (29th nationally) and has played far better offense than Michigan has, though maybe not ones as committed to being physical.


When Florida State Has The Ball: Dalvin Cook. Remember that name. If you hear it a lot then FSU is doing well. If not, well, pray for FSU. Travis Rudolph made headlines for being a good person during the season but he was quietly impressive on the field. He should keep Michigan’s defensive backfield busy. Taco Charlton, Jabril Peppers, and company will not be able to overlook FSU.


Analysis: Michigan is simply the better team. Harbaugh doesn’t have a great record in Bowl games but that shouldn’t matter this year.
