The undermanned Eagles take their perfect ACC-Big Ten Challenge record on the road as they visit the 3-2 Michigan Wolverines. After starting the season at a perfect 3-0, Michigan has lost back-to-back games to Marquette and Alabama in the Old Spice Classic. Those two losses have dropped Michigan out of both major polls. Junior Manny Harris has picked up where he left off last year, leading the Wolverines scoring 22.2 points per game through UM's first five games. Harris has scored at least 20 points in each of the Wolverine's last four games.
