I'm curious to see what M's game plan for this game is. Last year, it felt like Michigan put 'pedal to the metal' against Ohio State for four quarters and pulled out all the stops and tricks to win that game. They kept it on against Iowa, and blew them out of the water. Then by the time they arrived to play Georgia, they were out of gas, out of tricks, and got shown the door very quickly.

I wouldn't be shocked to see a return to the game plan of the first 11 games. Playing conservative, relying on the run game, and taking points where they're given. Doing just enough to leave with the win. Keeping what cards are remaining very close to the chest and not tipping anything to TCU, Georgia, or USC.

Purdue has struggled to score at times this year. They only put up 3 against Iowa, 20 against Minnesota, and 17 against Northwestern. The latter two their defense kept them in it and they pulled out a win... I think allowing our defense to have first chance to win this game makes a lot of sense.

With UGA steamrolling LSU now there is nothing good that can come from this game for Michigan in terms of the National picture, sure winning the B1G Championship is great for the kids but if your goal is to win the National Championship nothing we can do can help us tonight.  I guess the most important thing is to not suffer any major injuries.

That was a stupid review. Didn't they used to put a timer on the NFL reviews? Should be 2:00 from the time they put on a head seat. If no decision when the time expires, the audio cuts out and the call stands.

I'll take that though.

90 seconds.  If you can't overturn it in 90 seconds then there isn't "clear evidence" that the call was wrong on the field. 

Made 'em pay anyway.

92 yard drive with Purdue slicing through the defense with ease.  Purdue inside Michigan’s 1. 

We've seen teams do this in the first half to Michigan.   I'm not too worried.  It really doesn't matter, Michigan will be at #2 no matter what, but it sure would be nice to be the lone unbeaten team at the end of the season.
