Reports say that it will be around 30 degrees and a 54% chance of precipitation at TCF Bank Stadium. If there is snow falling down during the game, it won’t be a huge amount, so it shouldn’t have too much effect on the players.

Michigan comes into this game off a 9-4 season in 2019, which included a Citrus Bowl loss to Alabama. The projected starter, junior Joe Milton, has thrown only 11 passes the past two seasons. Coach Jim Harbaugh praised his offseason improvements and thinks he’s ready to take over the helm. The Wolverines main goal in this matchup will be to stop Minnesota’s running back Mohamed Ibrahim, who had a team-leading 1,160 yards in 2018 and 604 yards last season. Also, they’ll need to keep Minnesota’s Quarterback Tanner Morgan from connecting with future NFL wide receiver, Rashod Bateman. Morgan threw 30 touchdown passes last season when the Golden Gophers won 11 games. Minnesota looked like a Big Ten contender last season until they lost two of three games against Iowa and Wisconsin after upsetting Penn State.

Minnesota scored average 34.6 points per game in the 2019 season and gave up an average of 22.7 points per game on defense.

Minnesota is 5-1 straight up in their last 6 games at home, but 0-8 straight up in their last games when playing at home against Michigan. The total has gone over in 6 of the Golden Gophers last 7 games.

Michigan scored an average of 31.7 points per game last season, while on defense gave up an average of just 20.7 points per game.

Michigan is 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games and the total has gone over in 10 of the Wolverine’s last 15 games.
