With Michigan coming off another disappointing season, in which they lost four games, including a loss to rival Ohio State, they are looking to come back strong this season.

Week 1 – #12 Michigan @ #25 Washington

By Week 1, Michigan might not have even decided who the starting quarterback is going to be. Washington is normally a borderline top 25 team and the Wolverines will take them too lightly.

The loss will be narrow, but a loss is a loss.

Week 2 – #16 Michigan V.S. Ball State

This is an easy win for Michigan at home, regaining some confidence from the Week 1 loss.

Week 3 – #15 Michigan V.S. Arkansas State

Another “Gimme game” for the team in maize and blue this week.

Week 4 – #15 Michigan V.S. #9 Wisconsin

Recently the home team has won this matchup, and history will repeat itself in a 13 point victory for the Wolverines.

Week 5 – #10 Michigan V.S. #12 Penn State

Michigan is riding high off of last week’s win against Wisconsin, and they’ll improve to 4-1 after beating the Nittany Lions in the Big House.

Week 6 – #8 Michigan @ Michigan State

This will be a narrow victory, but an important one. This keeps the Paul Bunyan trophy in Ann Arbor for another year.

Week 7 – #6 Michigan @ #21 Minnesota

This is a game where the Wolverines get taken back down to reality after three morale-boosting victories in a row.

Week 8 – #10 Michigan V.S. Purdue

Michigan should have no trouble with Purdue here at home.

Week 9 – #9 Michigan V.S. Maryland

Along with Purdue, Maryland is a pretty weak team, and Michigan should beat them by a relatively large margin.

Week 10 – #9 Michigan @ Rutgers

Preparing for Ohio State are what these games near the end of the year are for Michigan. They will destroy Rutgers.

Week 11 – #7 Michigan V.S. Indiana

The trap games that Michigan have played these past few years against Indiana have been close, and never fail to be hard-fought games. Michigan will take this game, but it’ll fatigue them.

Week 12 – #6 Michigan V.S. #3 Ohio State

Another year, another loss for Michigan to OSU. Justin Fields is a great quarterback, and will not back down as he leads his Buckeyes to the CFP for the second year in a row.

Decent Bowl Game – #9 Michigan V.S. #11-16…

Michigan’s confidence is completely drained and they lose another bowl game with high hopes going into next season with a more seasoned Dylan McCaffrey/Joe Milton.
