Michigan has an overall record vs. Indiana of 54-9. They've only lost to IU twice in my lifetime 27-20 to the 1967 Hoosiers and 14-10 in 1987.
I've seen IU come close several times.
- I was at the famous 1979 game where a tie seemed imminent until Anthony Carter magic happened. M won 27-21
- My first trip to Bloomington in 1999 had IU throwing to the endzone for a chance at victory as time expired. M won 34-31
- The Rich Rodriguez era saw two close victories in 2009 and 2010. Both requiring late Michigan touchdowns and defensive stops to preserve wins for Michigan
- Even the 2013 game that ended up 63-47 was close for most of the game
That number shouldn't go up Saturday
