Week 1, Aug. 31: Michigan vs Middle Tennessee State (7:30 p.m. ET, BTN)
Potentially the greatest surprise is the opener against Middle Tennessee State on Saturday, Aug. 31. The Wolverines will face the Blue Raiders in a nightcap. Mid Tennessee State went 8-6 last season, but were 7-1 overall in American Athletic Conference play.
Week 2, Sept. 7: Michigan vs Army (Noon ET, FOX)
The Wolverines face an experienced Army Football team who went 11-2 last season. Their only two losses came to Duke in week one and a 7-point loss to Oklahoma. They finished their season with a 70-14 domination of the Houston Cougars in the Armed Forces Bowl.
Week 4, Sept. 21: Michigan at Wisconsin (Noon ET, FOX)
After a bye week in the third week of the season, the Wolverines will open up Big Ten play against a talented Wisconsin Badgers football team. The Badgers went 8-5 last season, but they still have one of the most talented running backs in the country in Jonathan Taylor. Last time the Wolverines went to Madison they fell 24-10 behind 141 rushing yards from Taylor.
Week 6, Oct. 5: Michigan vs. Iowa (Noon ET, TBA)
It will be homecoming for Michigan after they face Rutgers in Week 5 (game time TBA). They will face the Iowa Hawkeyes at noon in their fourth home game in five games. The Hawkeyes went 9-4 last season and defeated the No. 2 Wolverines in 2016 14-13 after a last second field goal. Michigan will be hoping for better results after the three year hiatus.
Week 10, Nov. 2: Michigan at Maryland (Noon ET, TBA)
Maryland went 5-7 last season and fell to Michigan 42-21 in Ann Arbor last year. Brandon Watson sealed the victory with this pick six:
Week 14, Nov. 30: Michigan vs Ohio State (Noon ET, FOX)
After a bye week in Week 11, The Wolverines will play home against the Michigan State Spartans and away against the Indiana Hoosiers before heading into the biggest game of the season.
The Game will be played in Ann Arbor this season and with Ryan Day taking over at the helm in Columbus.
