The Michigan football team is basking in the glow of an undefeated season and preparing for a Big Ten Championship Game showdown with the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday night.

According to a report from on Monday, Michigan football's chances with Underwood have gotten additional news updates lately.

“It’s huge,” analyst Zach Libby said to about the Belleville, Michigan native's recent visit. Underwood is expected to commit to a team by January 6 at the latest, and Michigan QB coach Kirk Campbell has reportedly been in contact with his family.

Michigan takes on the Hawkeyes this Saturday at 8 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the NFL's Indianapolis Colts. While it is not known if Underwood will be in attendance, one thing's for sure: a Big Ten championship would almost certainly increase Harbaugh and Michigan football's chances of landing the potential Class of 2025 superstar.
