OL has to give the QB time to pass and they have to get the top off the defense. If they do that it's a win.

Army only threw 4 passes, I wonder if we can get away with running the ball 40-45 times and when we do pass it comes out of the blue.

Well Army plays the triple option so not apples to apples. Key to me is don’t let Patterson run.
Yup. Make Patterson beat you with his arm. No long runs like last time. The Badger defense is better than last year and I don't think Michigan's defense is what it was a season ago, so hopefully that will balance things out in Bucky's favor and they win a close one.

Patterson's game is his ability to move around. Bottle him up, and it's over. He's not a bad passer, but when you can feel someone's breath on your neck, your passes aren't as crisp. The question is, can the Badgers put enough pressure on him to keep him off balance?

Of top 15 or 20 ranked teams I think Michigan might be the most overrated. Their defense is very good especially up front but their offense is at best average especially if Patterson gets contained. Also I’m not convinced he is healthy

If he decides to run the ball hit him make it so that he won't want to run because it will hurt to much
