Michigan’s 2022 season is fast approaching as is the hype surrounding it. And now more projections and predictions rolling in, via ESPN’s Football Power Index.

Michigan is the No. 6 team overall in the FPI with a score of 16.8. The FPI gives Michigan an 11% chance to win the Big Ten East and an 8.3% chance of winning the Big Ten Championship. The FPI doesn’t give Michigan much of a shot of making the College Football either, giving them a 17.8% shot.

The FPI likes Michigan’s chances of running the table throughout their first 11 games, but it feels the opposite about their chances against the Buckeyes in Columbus, Ohio.

Here’s a look at ESPN’s game-by-game projections for Michigan.

2022 Michigan Football Schedule Projections

Sept. 3 Colorado State: 97.6% chance of winning

Sept. 10 Hawaii: 98.0% chance of winning

Sept. 17 Connecticut: 99.1% chance of winning

Sept. 24 Maryland: 82.6% chance of winning

Oct. 1 at Iowa: 70.0% chance of winning

Oct. 8 at Indiana: 85.9% chance of winning

Oct. 15 Penn State: 66.9% chance of winning

Oct. 29 Michigan State: 69.5% chance of winning

Nov. 5 at Rutgers: 88.6% chance of winning

Nov. 12 Nebraska: 80.0% chance of winning

Nov. 19 Illinois: 93.1% chance of winning

Nov. 26 at Ohio State: 15.2% chance of winning

Take the projections with a grain of salt this time of year, as Michigan’s odds were even lower last July. Michigan ultimately proved a lot of people wrong en route to a win over Ohio State, a Big Ten Championship, and a College Football Playoff berth.
