[tps_title]October 19 – @ Penn State[/tps_title]
After losing to Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State in the regular season, Penn State had the opportunity to grab their 10th win of the season when they squared off against Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl. Unfortunately for the Nittany Lions and their fans, the Wildcats walked away with a 27-24 win.
This could certainly be a trap game for Michigan with Notre Dame coming up the following weekend but my gut is just telling me that Michigan will get the job done!
Michigan 27 Penn State 23
October 26 – vs. Notre Dame
Notre Dame had a magical 2018 season which saw them run the table in the regular season and make it all the way to the College Football Playoff. Unfortunately, for the Irish and their followers, the fun stopped when they were man-handled by the eventual champion, Clemson.
When Notre Dame comes to Ann Arbor in 2019, I believe they will have just one loss (at Georgia). With everything on the line, the Wolverines will rise to the occasion this time around and defeat the Irish in a close game.
Michigan 24 Notre Dame 20
November 2 – @ Maryland
When Maryland opened up the 2018 season with a 34-29 win over Texas, they had everyone’s attention. Unfortunately, their magic only lasted so long as the Terrapins dropped their final four games of the season to finish 5-7. One of those losses came at Michigan on October 6th when the Wolverines dropped the hammer in a 42-21 victory.
Similar to the Penn State game (at a lower level) this could be a trap game but the Wolverines will find a way to get the job done.
