Michigan is on upset alert as Indiana has already been having one of their best seasons in decades. GETTY IMAGES

Seeing a higher ranking for Indiana than Michigan in basketball is maybe possible. Seeing it in football matchup feels like a typo. But here we are. Indiana pulled off a miraculous overtime win against Penn State in the BIG-10 opening week, two weeks ago. If you haven't seen the ending yet, do yourself a favor.

The Hoosiers didn't stop there though. They handedly beat BIG-10 Conference punching bag Rutgers beating them 37-21 last week. That put them at #13 in the nation taking the spot of where Michigan was ranked last week before they lost to Michigan State by a field goal. After the Penn State win, Indiana immediately became ranked at #17. The Hoosiers are trying to go 3-0 for the first time since 1988.

They're already building off a strong season 8-5 season where they made a bowl game for the first time since 2016. They lost to Tennessee only by one point. This team's offense has really developed under fourth-year head coach Tom Allen. Ironically enough for Allen who has been a defensive coordinator for most of his career.

They are led by quarterback Michael Penix Jr. who threw for three touchdowns last week against Rutgers and a major improvement over the one touchdown and interception against Penn State. If he is to play like he did last week, they will prove themselves as legitimate contenders in the BIG-10.

For the Michigan Wolverines, they just can't seem to get over the hump in the era of Jim Harbaugh. They've never been bad but can't consistently win at the highest levels. Michigan played their hated in-state rival the unranked Michigan State Spartans last week where the Wolverines were considerable favorites. Michigan never led in the game and gave up too many big play through the air. They were down ten with less than five minutes to play.

They're going to have to tighten it up on defense if they are going to avoid falling out of the Top-25. They have the firepower on offense enough to be favored in a game that they should win. Redshirt sophomore running back had a touchdown in the game against the Spartans but only went for 56 yards. He's going to go for much more to pull off the expected win against the Hoosiers and not derail Michigan's season.

If so, the calls for Harbaugh's job will only get much louder. The problem for Michigan though is who is going to be a better fit? This is a must win for Big Blue against the Hoosiers in a pandemic shortened season.
