The Wildcats are 3-1 in games I live-blog, so here I am. (Yeah small sample sizes!) This is a unique game in the Big Ten. It features two teams that play very similar styles offensively and defensively. (Here's a Freep article on that topic.) That's why I think the line seems really high at Northwestern -6.5. Add in the fact that Ken Pomeroy and Accuscore predict that Northwestern should win about three of every four times these two teams played right now and it's pretty nerve-wracking.
Live: Northwestern vs. Michigan
Darius Morris and the Wolverines come to Welsh-Ryan Arena starting at 8 p.m. CT and I'll be there hoping that John Shurna finds some more points and Northwestern looks like an NCAA Tournament team. Come join in as you watch on the Big Ten Network, comments from both sides are always welcome.
