While teams are just beginning spring practices, we're already looking forward to the regular season. Sure, it's still a good six months away, but it's never too early to think about everything that comes with college football and the games that actually matter.
Michigan returns a total of 14 starters, including their star quarterback, Denard Robinson. They also return eight starters on the defensive side of the ball.
In head coach Brady Hoke's first season, Michigan won 11 games and won a bowl game for the first time since 2007. It's going to be extremely interesting to see what this team does for an encore.
The Wolverines have a favorable schedule but there are a few games to pay attention to. Here are four games that Michigan must win to repeat last year's success.
