Michigan’s defense has been very good the last two weeks

The Michigan Wolverines have finally turned things around and they are looking like a real threat in the Big Ten conference right now. The last two weeks, the Wolverines have pitched shutouts against BYU and Maryland and are finally back in the AP top 25.

There has been another very interesting stat for the Wolverines’ defense to come out after Saturday’s dominating win. The team has only allowed a total of 210 yards by opposing offenses the last two weeks (105 for both BYU and Maryland) while forcing them to punt for nearly 1,000 total yards.

Over the last 2 weeks, Michigan's opponents (BYU, Maryland) have gained 210 total yards and punted for 948 total yards.

They say defense wins championships and this could be true for the Wolverines this week. Michigan’s defense will need to be just as dominating this week.

The team hosts the undefeated Northwestern Wildcats this Saturday. This is going to be an all-out defensive war in Ann Arbor next week.
