ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Michigan football is entering the fifth season of the Jim Harbaugh era, and once again, the Wolverines are expected to compete at the top of the Big Ten.
Harbaugh came within one game of taking Michigan to the conference title and possibly the College Football Playoff. His team had to navigate a difficult schedule highlighted by three road rivalry games.
Those teams will travel to Ann Arbor this season, but the schedule is still very difficult, especially with a trio of nonconference opponents that finished last year a combined 31-9. We ranked all 12 games from what should be the easiest to the most difficult.
