These Analytics Show How Awesome The Michigan Defense Has Been

Much has been made about how dominant the Michigan defense has been this season, and with good reason.

The Wolverines have crushed their opponents, allowing only 10.3 points and 212.8 yards per game. Both of these marks lead the nation.

But just how good has Michigan's defense been? Well, these advanced analytics courtesy of Football Outsiders will tell you.

We highly suggest clicking on the link above to get some further insight into those stats, but yea, you can see by the tweet how wide the gap is between Michigan and everyone else.

Michigan has held three of four Big Ten opponents under 10 points, including shutting out Rutgers. Penn State is the only team to reach double-digits against the Wolverines in league play.

Michigan's next game is this Saturday at noon against Michigan State in East Lansing.
