The 2019 Michigan Wolverines once again disappointed and couldn't make serious noise in the Big Ten. After losses to Wisconsin, Penn State and Ohio State, Michigan once again missed out on the College Football Playoff. Another tough look for Jim Harbaugh.
with the pressure mounting on Habaugh to get the program back to an elite level, he'll need to make sure the Wolverines come out of the locker room on fire for each game. Especially the ones you might think Michigan will be favored in.
Playing in Husky Stadium against Washington is a tall task for any college football team. Playing in Husky Stadium in Week 1 as a team from the central time zone will be even more difficult. A non-conference road game to open the season is a lot to ask for out of Michigan.
While some fans might be focused on Big Ten opponents, UW has had tremendous success in the Pac-12. Despite losing starting QB Jacob Eason, the Huskies will be ready for an upset.
Michigan cannot afford to overlook Washington and focus on the Big Ten schedule. Starting the season on the road in one of the most difficult places to play is cause for concern for everyone in and around the Wolverines’ program.
