It's going to be a tough finishing stretch for the Wolverines.
-Nov. 2 at No. 22 Michigan State (7-1)
-Nov. 9 vs. Nebraska (5-2)
-Nov. 16 at Northwestern (4-4)
-Nov. 23 at Iowa (5-3)
-Nov. 30 vs. No. 4 Ohio State (8-0)
If the Wolverines had trouble with the likes of Akron, Connecticut and Indiana, the team must be shaking in its boots when they take a look at the November slate.
Sure, Michigan may only play two ranked opponents. However, those other teams are no picnic either.
In fact, the five teams have a combined record of 29-10.
It’s very likely that the Wolverines could have trouble in all three of their remaining road games. If you recall, this is a team that struggled immensely in its two road games thus far—a 24-21 win over Connecticut and a 43-40 loss to Penn State.
Facing the Cornhuskers—a team many think could win the Legends division—and the Buckeyes don’t make the home contests any easier.
With no weeks off, it’s a pretty daunting road ahead for a Michigan team that has been largely inconsistent throughout 2013.
