East Carolina will have a major task as they head to Ann Arbor to face Michigan. Michigan won 13 games last season which is a school high. East Carolina is way over their head in this game, but they found ways to score last season, hitting 20+ points in 11 of 13 games. Michigan is going to have at least as good of an offense as they did a year ago when they put up over 40 PPG. Michigan faced three out-of-conference games a year ago and scored an average of 55.3 PPG. I certainly think there is a chance that Michigan matches those numbers even with the garbage time, as that was also the case a year ago. East Carolina has the ability to get a score, and perhaps a second score in garbage time, and I see plenty of opportunity here for this game to play OVER the total.
