Since then, the Wolverines have been shut out in three trips, 2005, 2007 (the "Chad Henne noodle arm game") and 2009.

23 NORTHWESTERN, 11 a.m. BTN - P.J. Fleck's Western Michigan team beat the Wildcats in the 2016 road opener on the way to a 13-1 season. MI finished the game with John O'Korn at quarterback. Instead the Wolverines are playing spoiler, and frankly, it's gotten old hat. We'll find out soon enough. Last week for our picks.

Michigan's Ben Mason tied things up before halftime with a 1-yard touchdown run. Things haven't been the same since Barry Alvarez arrived and started turning two-star linemen into big, strong, killing machines. nearly like they put something in the water up there.

After halftime the Badgers' defense proved nearly impenetrable. The Wolverines make it a game, but come up just shy.

Jim Harbaugh's 19th-ranked squad in the AP Poll will look to continue its winning ways this weekend against the undefeated No. 5 Badgers.

A number of Badgers are enjoying terrific seasons on both sides of the ball, but Hornibrook's improvement has been the biggest difference-maker in what could be a national championship campaign.

MI had registered just two second-half first downs up until that point, benefitted from an interception in Wisconsin territory to help set up a 39-yard field goal, and protection from the offensive line was breaking down.

Sure, the Wolverines only trailed 14-10 at the time of Brandon Peters' apparent head injury, so severe it knocked him from Michigan's eventual 24-10 loss at No. 5 Wisconsin, but signs weren't exactly pointing toward the way offense. The offensive play won't be pretty on either side, and the defenses should dominate for much of the afternoon.

The Badgers held MI to just 58 rushing yards in the game, while getting 132 rushing yards from star freshman tailback Jonathan Taylor.

MI (8-3, 5-3 Big Ten) closes out the regular season next Saturday at Ohio State. When the smoke cleared, it was 21-10 and the Badgers were in control.

Andrew Vailliencourt: Wisconsin is similar in many ways to MI. "Very similar-type defenses, and so you don't want to panic".

While Hornibrook's numbers against MI don't jump off the page, he came up with a couple of huge throws in key situations to lead the Badgers to a win.
