MICHIGAN RUSH OFFENSE vs. WISCONSIN RUSH DEFENSE
Michigan is #69 in rush offense (171 yards/game) and #94 in yards per carry (3.79), but it feels even worse. While all-conference left tackle Jon Runyan, Jr. should be back in action this weekend after missing the first two games, there are rumors that starting running back Zach Charbonnet will miss time after having his knee scoped. Wisconsin is #1 in rush defense (20.5 yards allowed/game) and #2 in yards allowed per carry (0.93). The Badgers have 10 tackles for loss already, led by outside linebacker Zack Baun (6’3″, 235 lbs.). Freshman nose tackle Keeanu Benton (6’4″, 315) will start, which might be a plus for Michigan when he’s matched up against junior Cesar Ruiz for much of the game.
