The biggest knock on Jim Harbaugh is that he's struggled to win against ranked opponents. We're only in the fourth week of the college football season, but Urban Meyer believes Michigan is in a must-win situation this afternoon.

Michigan won its first two games against Middle Tennessee and Army. It'll be much harder to defeat Wisconsin on the road in Madison.

Harbaugh's crew enters today's matchup as the underdog.

Meyer understands that Michigan isn't favored over Wisconsin. Nonetheless, the former Ohio State coach believes this is a must-win game for the prestigious program in Ann Arbor.

"At some point it has to happen. They have to go on the road and they have to win as an underdog. I think this is a must-win game. They have to go to Madison and win today."

The Wolverines have looked pretty sloppy on offense in their first two games. Fortunately for the coaching staff, it had a bye week to figure out any issues plaguing the starting unit.

While fans in Michigan aren't very fond of Meyer, they most likely agree that Harbaugh needs to lead his team to a victory over Wisconsin.

Michigan and Wisconsin are set to kick off at noon E.T. on FOX.
