Stuffing the Run

Michigan's run defense is ranked #1 in the Big Ten and #4 in the NCAA as the Wolverines have yielded an average of only 29 rushing yards per game this season. Michigan held Vanderbilt to just 42 yards on 26 attempts (1.6 avg.) in the season opener and then followed that performance by limiting CMU to 16 yards on 21 attempts (0.8 avg.) in game two. The Wolverines run defense will be tested against Notre Dame as Michigan has had difficulty stopping Darius Walker the past two meetings between the teams. In 2004, Walker ran for 115 yards and 2 touchdowns and he ran for 104 yards in last year's contest. This year the defense, under Coach "E", look to shut Walker down. Go Blue!
