Since the home opener now is officially 2 days away we all know how important it is for Michigan to get into this game with an early lead. This Uconn team is not a joke like Deleware State or BG. They are skilled in areas on defense and offense and for Michigan to come out with some fire, an early 7-0 lead is the way to get the fire lit. What would also be nice to see is a Uconn 3 and out if we choose to kickoff. A kickoff off return for a an early touchdown would blow the clouds out of the sky above the Big House. What's one big thing your looking to see on our first drive down field? Ball security, good passing, broken tackles, big gains, a touchdown or all of the above? If defense is our first stand of the game what key things will you be looking for?
