Sep 17, 2016; Ann Arbor, MI, USA; Michigan Wolverines running back Ty Isaac is tripped up in the backfield in the second quarter against the Colorado Buffaloes at Michigan Stadium.
Will Michigan’s injured starters return? Without Taco Charlton and Bryan Mone, the defensive line rotated very little.

With close fourth quarter games coming, this will be magnified.

It also has been competitive, the past four games each within 12 points and 13 of the 19 within that margin.
