Week Thirteen Preview: Michigan Wolverines

The penultimate game of the 2019 regular season sees the Indiana Hoosiers host the Michigan Wolverines. IU has been oh so close to finally knocking off Michigan in the recent past but they have not actually beaten the Maize and Blue since 1987 (a 14-10 triumph in Bloomington). The Wolverines have won 22 in a row in the series. This game comes right before gigantic rivalry games for both schools and it’s impossible to tell what all will be on the line for either side when November 23 rolls around.

2019 Opposing Special Teams Rankings

Welcome back to our opponent unit ranking series. Today we will are ranking the special teams units for each of the Indiana Hoosiers’ opponents during the 2019 regular season. We will consider each phase of special teams (kicking, punting, punt return and coverage and kickoff return and coverage).

Since we don’t rank IU in this, I will tell you where I would put them. The Hoosiers would be right, smack in the middle of this ranking. Kicker Logan Justus is very solid and Charles Campbell could be used as a capable kicker as well. Haydon Whitehead is a really good punter as well. The questions for IU come in the return and coverage games. Can they find a replacement for J-Shun Harris who was an All-Big Ten punt returner? Will someone breathe life into the kickoff return unit? Finally, can they fix whatever plagued them late in the year on kickoff coverage?
