Michigan will be deprived of its biggest offensive weapon for this one and the remainder of the season with wide receiver Ronnie Bell. However, after seeing the Wolverines, led by Blake Corum and Hassan Haskins, lead football as well as they did a week ago, although against Western Michigan I am confident Michigan will deal business on Saturday against Washington. Certainly the Huskies lost their Week 1 game to FCS opponent Montana played a part in my prediction. Still, I think Washington will bounce back with a much stronger performance in this prime-time game with the Wolverines.

Despite losing top receiver Ronnie Bell to injury last season last week, Michigan is preparing to welcome Washington to the Big House today. With more solid performances from Cade McNamara, Blake Corum and Hassan Haskins, I can see the Wolverines winning this one, to go 2-0 that year.

For Michigan, it’s another prime time, spotlight opportunity to play well against a struggling team. I want to see how the team reacts to the loss of Ronnie Bell and if the defense can force Washington quarterback Dylan Morris to throw more interceptions, like he had three in the Huskies’ season opener. .

The Washington Huskies looked completely out of whack last week, as the big favorites against Montana, and put in a failed performance in a loss. I expect them to bring some “us versus the world” mentality to the Big House on Saturday night.
Michigan showed last week that this team has building blocks, but it took a hard hit as Ronnie Bell finished for the season.
I expect Michigan to take advantage of a shocked Huskies team, but they don’t fall without a fight.
