Predictions for Week 3

UMass at Michigan, 3:30 p.m.
It seems impossible to conjure up a way that Michigan loses this game. UMass is bad. In fact, UMass may be the worst FBS team in the country. The Wolverines should have their way with the Minutemen and it shouldn’t take long for this game to get out of hand. I see Michigan winning easy, but the point spread for the game is around 45 points. I can never feel good about giving any team that many points. There are just too many things that can go wrong in that scenario. I see Michigan winning, but don’t know if they can cover the lofty odds.
Michigan 50, UMass 10

Notre Dame at MSU, 8 p.m.
This game should be exciting and filled with emotion. Both teams are off to strong starts and hopeful for a 10-win season. I think the fact that the Spartans are at home will really be the deciding factor in their victory. I see Everett Golson struggling in this one. It will be a tough environment for a freshman quarterback. I don’t see the MSU offense having great success, but doing enough to stay ahead of the Irish. With the lead, the MSU defense will make enough plays to keep the Spartans on top. It won’t be a pretty victory, but that is becoming MSU’s style.
