How to watch Indiana vs. Michigan 2013: Preview, TV schedule, odds and more

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Can Indiana win at the Big House for the first time since 1967?

Two teams coming off tough Big Ten losses square off as the Michigan Wolverines host the Indiana Hoosiers. Television coverage begins at 3:30 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.

After back-to-back-to-back close wins against Notre Dame, Akron and Connecticut, it looked like Michigan finally got their act together with a blowout win over Minnesota. Last Saturday, however, the season fell back apart, as Michigan fell to Penn State in quadruple overtime. With a tough remaining Big Ten slate, Michigan needs a win here to stay in the conference race.

Indiana suffered a rough loss to Navy early, but their other two losses are looking more respectable by the day: Michigan State and Missouri. This Hoosier team beat Penn State for the first time in school history, and Kevin Wilson really seems to be taking the troubled program in a positive direction.

The numbers

Rankings and records: Michigan is unranked in the AP Poll but slots in at No. 24 in the Coaches' Poll and the Harris Poll. The Wolverines are 5-1 while the Hoosiers are 3-3, but both schools are 1-1 in Big Ten play. The Wolverines hold a 52-9 lead in the all-time series, and have won the last 17 games between the two schools.

Vegas: Michigan is a ten-point favorite. OddsShark has more.

Weather: Low 50s with a chance of rain.

Three names to know

Devin Gardner. Michigan's quarterback has made some major mistakes and is turnover-prone, but it's impossible to deny that he's one of the most talented players in the conference.

Jake Ryan. The Wolverines' star linebacker is back from injury, and the Michigan defense should look completely different with him anchoring the front seven.

Tevin Coleman. Indiana has been very strong on the ground this year, and much of that is thanks to the sophomore running back, who has scored eight touchdowns.

Two things at stake

The Legends Division is fairly wide open, but Michigan can't lose another game if they want to stay in contention.

Indiana isn't going to contend in the Leaders Division this year, but a win over Michigan would be further proof of the program's progress.
