Michigan vs. Minnesota - Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Preview, Predictions

Is Brady Hoke coaching for his job this weekend? The Michigan coach, coming off a loss to Utah this past weekend, certainly appears to be on the hot seat. Hoke, 55, is 28-15 through three-plus years in Ann Arbor, and his Michigan team, at 2-2, is not off to a good start this season.

Michigan hosts Minnesota at the Big House this Saturday and it's likely a must-win for the Wolverines, as a loss would drop Hoke's squad below .500 and hand them their second home loss in as many weeks. The Golden Gophers, meanwhile, enter the game at 3-1, coming off a 24-7 win against San Jose State. 

Date: Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014

Game time:3:30 p.m. E.T. 

TV Channel: ABC/ESPN2

Location: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Mich. 

Betting line: Michigan -11.5 (via 5Dimes)

Prediction: Who will be starting at quarterback for Michigan? Devin Gardner or Shane Morris? As long as that quarterback doesn't turn the ball over a lot, it probably won't matter against Minnesota. Michigan, while reeling, is due for a good performance and they should turn one in against the Golden Gophers. 

Michigan's struggled to throw the ball this season, but they're running it very well, averaging more than 200 yards a game on the ground. If Minnesota can control the line of scrimmage, this game could be close, but more than likely, the Wolverines will turn in a 10-plus point victory this Saturday.
