■ Notes: This is the 100th anniversary of the Little Brown Jug rivalry. …The Wolverines could have a new look on their offensive line. Coach Brady Hoke projected that Graham Glasgow would start at center over Jack Miller and said a shakeup would be determined on the basis of competition. … Hoke also said that his staff wants freshman running back Derrick Green to get more playing time. Green led UM with 58 yards on 11 carries against Central Michigan but has only two carries since then. … While UM running back Fitzgerald Toussaint had his highest rushing output of the season at Connecticut (24 carries for 120 yards), quarterback Devin Gardner had his lowest passing output with 11 completions for 97 yards. … Michigan is ninth in the Big Ten in total offense (409.2), ahead of Minnesota (343). Minnesota, however, has the conference’s lowest passing offense (111.2) and has passed for only two TDs this season. … David Cobb leads the Golden Gophers with 352 yards and five TDs on 61 carries, but the team ran for only 30 yards on 27 carries in last week’s loss to Iowa. Minnesota has allowed opponents an average of 131.4 rushing yards.
