Through two games, Michigan has looked like the Big Ten title favorite like everyone expected. The Wolverines dominated UNLV en route to their second blowout win of the season and while they haven’t been covering the spread with regularity, it seems like they’re playing conservatively.

Although they weren’t exactly running hurry-up to run up the score on UNLV, JJ McCarthy still had a great game and he’s starting to build a nice Heisman resume through two cakewalk games. He finished with 278 yards and two touchdowns on 22-of-25 completions.

Blake Corum had a nice game as well, rushing for 80 yards and three touchdowns to follow up a modest opening game.

Michigan is just taking care of business with Jim Harbaugh still away from the team on Saturdays.

The Wolverines are going to stay at No. 2 this week after dominating UNLV and improving to 2-0. We still don’t know a ton about this team through two weeks.
