Fourth-ranked Michigan looks to stay unbeaten when it hits the road for the first time to face Rutgers on Saturday. The Wolverines shut down then-eighth-ranked Wisconsin 14-7 to post their first victory over a top-10 opponent since 2008, and they can extend their winning streak to six games by beating Rutgers for the second successive season.

Left tackle Grant Newsome suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Badgers and was replaced by Juwan Bushell-Beatty, who is likely to get the start on Saturday. Kenny Allen, who made 18-of-22 field goals last year, missed two more attempts to bring his season total to 4-of-8.

Chris Laviano continues to struggle as he was limited to 3-of-12 passing for 33 yards while backup quarterback Tylin Odin misfired on all four of his pass attempts in the loss to Ohio State. Tyreek Maddox-Williams led the Scarlet Knights’ defense with a career-high 11 tackles while Kiy Hester and Deonte Roberts added 10 tackles apiece against the Buckeyes. Cornerback Ross Douglas, who graduated from Michigan in the summer and transferred to Rutgers with two years of eligibility remaining, returned last week after missing two games with a leg injury and hopes to make some plays against his former team.

Michigan ranks in the top 10 nationally in scoring offense (10th) and scoring defense (sixth).

Wolverines WR Amara Darboh has four receiving touchdowns in five games.

Rutgers has dropped nine of its last 10 Big Ten games since the start of the 2015 season.
