Tricky question: Who will be the leading rusher when Eastern Michigan faces Michigan?
Expect a few handoffs Saturday.
Three of the top 30 NCAA rushing leaders will be on the field when Eastern Michigan faces Michigan at Michigan Stadium.Michigan offensive coordinator Al Borges believes the key for the Wolverines to have longer sustained drives is more production from their running backs. Even freshmen Thomas Rawls and Justice Hayes may get a shot, Brady Hoke says.
Eastern (2-0) comes in with the fifth-ranked ground game in the NCAA at 331 yards per game. Sophomore running back Javonti Greene averages 133 yards per game (No. 8 in NCAA) and redshirt junior Dominique Sherrer averages 115.5 (No. 26). Even EMU quarterback Alex Gillett averages 75 yards.
Michigan (2-0) counters with quarterback Denard Robinson (No. 28), who had 108 rushing yards against Notre Dame, the 10th 100-yard rushing game of his career.
What does it all mean? It means it's time for another poll:
