You can make the case that it would be despite Penn State's losses to UCF and Indiana. I've listed Coach Hoke's road wins below with the final records of the defeated teams in parentheses. Given the hostile crowd that Michigan will face in Happy Valley, I don't see any wins that would trump a win on Saturday...EDIT: I did not count the Sugar Bowl since it was a neutral site game...EDIT No. 2: I am referring to the biggest road win to date.
A thought regarding the 2012 OSU game: that was arguably Michigan's best road performance under Coach Hoke in light of the Buckeyes' 12-0 finish and the typical loudness of the crowd at the Shoe.
Moral of the story: Let's not take anything for granted tomorrow.
