Washington vs. Michigan odds heading into game week

This was supposed to be a good one, but maybe Washington is actually a bad team?

A Pac-12 team coming off a shocking loss heads to The Big House as the Washington Huskies face the Michigan Wolverines in Ann Arbor, Michigan on Saturday, September 11th at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on ABC.

Washington was a chic pick to win the Pac-12 this season, but they were simply brutal in a 13-7 loss to the Montana Grizzlies of the Big Sky Conference. Quarterback Dylan Morris was 27-46 for 226 yards and three interceptions. The Huskies ran 15 plays for 40 yards in the fourth quarter, and looked like the FCS team playing for a paycheck instead of their opponent. It will be a long week for head coach Jimmy Lake and UW.

Michigan had little trouble with Western Michigan in a 47-14 victory last Saturday. UM finished with 550 yards on 9.2 yards per play, including 14 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown from running back Blake Corum. Nine different receivers caught a pass, and starting quarterback Cade McNamara was 9-11 for 136 yards and two touchdowns in the romp. But the loss of WR Ronnie Bell looks to be long-term as he was carted off the field, a blow that might be a big problem for the Wolverines.
