Most college football analysts expected a tight, low-scoring affair when Michigan headed up to Madison to take on Wisconsin. Most college football analysts appear to have been wrong.

Wisconsin has absolutely dominated the contest thus far - to the tune of a 28-0 lead at halftime. The Badgers have out-gained the Wolverines in terms of yardage 312-96.

Furthermore, Wisconsin has dominated time of possession. The Badgers had the ball for over 23 of the first 30 minutes.

Needless to say, Michigan fans are in shock. They were worried about their team after the Army game. They're now terrified of how this season might play out.

On the team's final drive of the first half, quarterback Shea Patterson was replaced by Dylan McCaffrey. It'll be interesting to see who Harbaugh sends out as his signal-caller in the second half.

Jonathan Taylor, Wisconsin's star running back, had a huge first quarter, rushing for 143 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries. He's since been out of the game with cramps.

We'll see if Michigan can turn it around in the second half. If not, it's going to be a rough week for Harbaugh & Co.
