Each Thursday, WolverineNation will take a look at five storylines for the Wolverines heading into Saturday's game. And this weekend, as the Wolverines hit the road to take on Nebraska, it’ll be a battle of teams fighting at the top of the Legends Division.

1. Denard Robinson making smart decisions. Robinson has played a few smart games in a row, so we’ll see if that trend continues against Nebraska. The Wolverines played it pretty conservative against Michigan State and with the Cornhuskers defense giving up more than 350 yards a game (seventh in the Big Ten) Michigan could allow Robinson to take a few more shots down field this game, though it might not be necessary for the win.

2. Playing on the road. The Sea of Red creates an intense and interesting atmosphere in Memorial Stadium. It should be the most hostile environment the Wolverines have played in so far this season. Noise will be a factor and the Wolverines will have to make sure their communication is clear from coaches to players and players to other players. Michigan coach Brady Hoke has stressed the importance of not turning the ball over on the road and this should be a good challenge.
