Having completed the regular season without a single loss for the second consecutive year, Michigan has maintained remarkable health throughout the challenging 12-game schedule. The only setbacks include the loss of starting guard Zak Zinter to a season-ending leg injury. Additionally, cornerback Will Johnson, who was observed with a leg wrap on the sideline last week, is now listed as questionable for the B1G Championship game.

In the released injury report, starting center Drake Nugent is also marked as questionable for the upcoming match against the Hawkeyes. While there’s a possibility of Johnson attempting to play—he is listed as questionable—it is suggested that he might only participate in warm-up activities and not actually play unless absolutely necessary for Michigan.
