The University of Michigan is having a better than expected season under first year coach Brady Hoke.   The Wolverines are now standing at 9-2 heading into their arch rival game with Ohio State who they haven't defeated since 2003. 

First the Wolverines destroyed the #17 ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers at the Big House on Saturday 45-17 to move to 9-2 overall and 5-2 in the Legends division of the Big Ten.

Michigan playing in front of another sold out crowd on ESPN's national game with two top 20 teams meeting each other.   All the stars were out for this game.  Former Cornhusker Head Coach and now Athletic Director Tom Osborn was in attendance along with Former Wolverine Head Coach Lloyd Carr who was honored for going into the College Football Hall of Fame. 

Denard Robinson played his best game of the season to date with two rushing touchdowns to go along with his two passing touchdowns.  The Michigan defense rose to the occasion stopping the high scoring Nebraska offense by limiting them to just 17 points.

Michigan now looks ahead to this Saturday's big game against the Ohio State Buckeyes who are struggling this season with a 6-5 record coming into the game.  A win against the Buckeyes would give Michigan a 10-2 record and most likely would set them up for a BCS Bowl game.   All in all everyone has to be pleased with the direction the team has taken under 1st year Head Coach Brady Hoke.
