NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Michigan vs Alabama Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

We have a Michigan Wolverines football schedule and now we have a coaches poll, where Jim Harbaugh’s program has been ranked as the 15th-best team in the country ahead of the 2020 football season.

Michigan is the fourth-highest team in the Big Ten with Ohio State (No. 2), Penn State (No. 7) and Wisconsin (No. 12) ahead of the Wolverines in the pecking order per the football coaches across the country.

Clemson leads the way with 38 first-place votes as the team to beat in college football this year. The rest of the top five is rounded out by the Buckeyes, Alabama, Georgia and LSU.

Here is the full poll put out by USA Today:

Michigan is scheduled to open the 2020 football season on Sept. 5 at home against Purdue. Of course, it still remains to be seen if these games wind up being played or not, but we at least have some more offseason fodder to take our minds off everything else going on.
