ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — All five Big Ten teams that hosted games last Saturday lost.

That bleak day drop the overall record for home games in the conference to 6-7 during the pandemic that has kept crowds away.

Michigan linebacker Josh Ross says games are more balanced without crowds.

The lack of fan-filled stadiums may prove to limit the edge home teams have had in the past and perhaps will give visitors an emotional boost.

The 23rd-ranked Wolverines certainly hope that's the case on the road at No. 13 Indiana on Saturday.
