Sport Michigan Game Saturday: Northern Illinois vs. Michigan odds and prediction for NCAA Week 3 game
Three bold predictions for Browns in 2021: Rushing duo accomplishes rare feat en route to division crown
Cleveland will lean on a familiar rushing attack and an improved defense in 2021Here are my three bold predictions for the Browns THIS season:
Northern Illinois travels to Ann Arbor to take on the No. 25 ranked Michigan Wolverines in Week 3 of college football and we have you covered with all the info.
The newly ranked, No. 25, Michigan Wolverines will face the Northern Illinois Huskies this Saturday. The Wolverines, coming off two dominant victories, will look to continue to run right through their opponents.
Doing most of the running is backfield tandem Hassan Haskins and Blake Corum, or Thunder and Lightning as they're known in Ann Arbor. Both backs have over 200 rushing yards after the first two games with Haskins averaging 5.6 a carry and Corum 8.1.
Western Michigan head coach Tim Lester tests positive for COVID-19
Western Michigan is coming off an upset 44-41 road win against the Pittsburgh Panthers that improved the Broncos to 2-1 on the season. It was Western Michigan's first victory over a Power 5 opponent under Lester. Lester hopes to be cleared to coach at the Buffalo Bulls on Oct. 2.

Northern Illinois, who is coming off a 50-43 loss against Wyoming, will be tasked with slowing down the explosive Michigan run game. The Huskies haven't shown the ability to stop the run, allowing 231 rushing yards a game.
However, they will bring their own powerful run game, averaging 204.5 rushing yards a game. Northern Illinois' run game will have to keep stride with the Wolverines if they want to go into The Big House and pull off the upset.
Michigan vs Northern Illinois Odds Week 3
Point Spread: Michigan -28
Moneyline: Michigan -3000, Northern Illinois +1700
Over/Under: 55 points
Michigan vs Northern Illinois Prediction Week 3
This game should play out much like the listed odds. The Wolverines run game will be too much for Northern Illinois. Haskins and Corum are due for another big day. Even though the Huskies have their own run game, it's unlikely that they'll be able to hang around with the Huskies for long. Final Score: Michigan 45, Northern Illinois 14
Union urges NFL to adopt daily COVID-19 testing for vaccinated players
There’s a decent chance that the COVID-19 pandemic will play more of a role during the 2021 NFL season than last year. We’re seeing relaxed protocols from the league as it relates to fully vaccinated players with Week 1 of the campaign slated to get going Thursday evening. It has already led to some COVID-related issues for teams. That includes star guard Zack Martin and the Dallas Cowboys with their opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mere days away. Despite being fully vaccinated, Martin tested positive for the virus and will miss the game.NFLPA president JC Tretter of the Cleveland Browns touched on this recently.
