ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan has rolled through the first part of its schedule, beating two ranked opponents while opening the season with 10 straight wins.

The Wolverines face a stiff challenge this week in an always-tough Big Ten if they’re going to keep it going.

One of six unbeaten teams left in Division I, No. 7 Michigan faces No. 9 Wisconsin and No. 23 Minnesota in a span of four days.

Michigan has won four of its five conference games by at least nine points and is seventh in the KenPom.com ratings.
