The Michigan Wolverines head on the road to Madison for a match-up against No. 13 Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon.

It's the biggest game of the day for Big Ten programs and could determine the potential Big Ten champion.

The Wolverines enter the game as the underdog - which is bad news for Michigan fans. Head coach Jim Harbaugh is winless in games where the Wolverines are the underdog.

However, Michigan received some advice from Kirk Herbstreit on Saturday morning.

The College GameDay analyst thinks there's hope for Michigan yet. Here's what he had to say, via 247Sports.

"Listen to this — Michigan’s offense, all we heard about was how different things are going to be with Josh Gattis. And now we get a really good chance to see, with two weeks to get ready, how much they’re really ready for this kind of game and this kind of atmosphere. I think all the negativity honestly will bring people to ether and they’re going to play better than expected in this game."

Wisconsin has one of the most potent rushing attacks in the country and Michigan struggled in its last game against Army's triple-option.

Can the Wolverines find a way to slow down Jonathan Taylor and get their own offense rolling?

We'll find out this afternoon.
