ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Illinois might be one of the worst teams in the Big Ten this season, and it didn’t help on Saturday when starting quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase was knocked out of the game. But Michigan still did exactly what it needed to do: Win, and win big.

The Wolverines shut out the Illini 45-0 and were led again by Jake Ryan, who is becoming a star this season after being a player in the right position a lot last season.

Due to the defensive dominance, the majority of this week’s Michigan 10 focuses on that side of the ball:
