Devin Bush Believes Wisconsin is the Beginning of How This Season Will be Defined

The first half of the season is over for the Wolverines and it was the easiest part of the season. They had to travel to Notre Dame, their toughest game so far this season, and they lost. Since then they have won five straight and have only had a hiccup against Northwestern. Besides that, it has been smooth sailing.

The winds are about to pick up because a storm is coming for this team.

Michigan starts the tough half of their season against No. 15 Wisconsin this week, then they travel to East Lansing to play Michigan State, then after the bye, they host No. 8 Penn State. While that is a tough three-game stretch for the team, they also still have Rutgers, a feisty Indiana team and No. 3 Ohio State in Columbus.

For this week though, the focus is on Wisconsin and how important this game is for the team’s conference and national championship hopes and linebacker Devin Bush knows that it starts now for this team.

“It’s the beginning of it (season-defining game),” Bush said. “This is the part of the season where it defines your whole season and what your team wants to do. This is one of those games you see on the schedule, you gotta get those first six games out of the way, but you know this game is eventually coming and now that it’s here it’s all you’ve been waiting for.”

Bush talked Saturday about Wisconsin has to come play Michigan, Wisconsin has to come beat Michigan and he expanded more on what that meant on Monday.

“That means that we’re going to play our game no matter what they do, you know how they try and attack us we’re going to play our game and they gotta defend against us.”

Last year was a tough loss to the Badgers, one that the Wolverines had a 10-7 lead in before losing 24-10 and one that without a few mistakes that they could have won against Wisconsin.

“That was the game where we had it won,” Bush said. “You know it was opportunities that we missed and we didn’t capitalize them. I think this year we finish a lot better than we did last year and on top of that we already been in situations, based off last year, so we know how to beat teams like that, we know what it takes to beat teams like that.”

Michigan will look to get their revenge against Wisconsin this Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in primetime under the lights in The Big House.
