Los Angeles Super Regional Prediction

Michigan is this year’s token Big Ten team in a Super Regional. However, they won’t be hosting, they’ll be visiting one of the best teams in the country in UCLA. The Wolverines had the good fortune to traveling to a not so No. 1 seed, No. 1 seed Oregon State which fizzled out of the tourney quickly. Hats off to UM for taking advantage of their situation but it’s all gonna be over pretty soon. UCLA just has too many weapons and is superior to the Wolverines in just about every statistical category. Enjoy the sunshine while you can Michigan. UCLA 2 wins, Michigan 0 wins.
