Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he would like to see the same offense he saw Saturday show up when the Wolverines play at Michigan State.

He hopes the maize and blue look a lot different on defense.

Hoke, his staff and players have a lot of work to do. And, they'll have time to do it during a bye week before playing Nov. 2 against the Spartans.

Michigan was spectacular with the ball in a record-breaking 63-37 win against Indiana. But the Wolverines were awful on defense, allowing the Hoosiers to average 7.5 yards per play and finish with 572 yards.

Thomas Gordon, though, helped Michigan seal its sixth win by making interceptions on two straight drives midway through the fourth quarter and with 2:57 left in the shootout.
