(AP) — Paced by a potent offense, Michigan has a very good chance to match the best start in the program’s history before its Big Ten schedule gets increasingly tougher.

The second-ranked Wolverines try for a 16th consecutive victory to open the season while visiting Nebraska hopes to avoid its second straight 0-3 conference start Wednesday night.

Averaging 90.2 points and shooting 54.9 percent in the last five games, Michigan (15-0, 2-0) is playing well enough to surpass the 1985-86 team’s 16-0 mark as the best in school history. The Wolverines rank among the national leaders with 82.0 points per game after not averaging more than 66.9 in coach John Beilein’s previous five seasons in Ann Arbor.
