For the third-straight week, the nation was laughing at Michigan.

The Wolverines opened the season with a 49-24 win over Minnesota that had Michigan Men knighting Joe Milton and throwing around that elusive, four-letter B-word that rhymes with "hack."

Fast forward three weeks and Michigan just lost its third consecutive game in a blowout and just four weeks into the season is already guaranteed to finish with its worst record of any season under Jim Harbaugh.

Saturday's game was a chance for Michigan to right the ship and move to .500 on the season with a win over a top-15 conference foe. Instead, the Wolverines spent four hours getting blasted by everyone, online and on the air.

Milton opened the game with back-to-back interceptions on his first two pass attempts and the freefall continued the rest of the game.

With that loss, Harbaugh is now the first Michigan coach to start his career with at least three losses in six consecutive seasons and drops to 11–16 against ranked opponents at Michigan.

To finish the regular season with a winning record, the Wolverines will have to win out, starting with Rutgers next week.
