ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- If there is any lingering doubt over the improvement Michigan has had under defensive coordinator Greg Mattison, it is this.

Michigan’s magic number the past two seasons is 17.

Score at least 17 points and the Wolverines are 15-0 in his almost two seasons in Ann Arbor. Score fewer than 17 points and Michigan is 1-4, having reversed the trend only on Saturday in a 12-10 win over Michigan State.
