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.
