2019 Michigan Football schedule is unique due to early game and multiple bye weeks

The Wolverines have an interesting schedule coming up

Heading into the 2018 college football season, the thought by many experts was that Michigan‘s schedule would be too much for them to handle. After all, having road games against your three biggest rivals (Ohio State, Notre Dame, and Michigan State) along with home matchups against Wisconsin and Penn State is never easy.

Well, that gauntlet of games is over and the Wolverines went 3-2 with losses in their first game (@ND) and last game (@OSU) of the season. In addition, Michigan got stomped by Florida in the Peach Bowl.

But what about next season when MSU, OSU, and N.D. come to the Big House?

Let’s take a look at how Michigan’s 2019 schedule shapes up.

As you can see below, rather than opening up the season against Notre Dame like the Wolverines did this season, they start things off by hosting Middle Tennessee State. The following week brings in Army before the Wolverines get their first of two bye weeks for the season.

Aug. 31 vs. Middle Tennessee

Sept. 7 vs. Army

Sept. 14 BYE WEEK

Sept. 21 @Wisconsin

Sept. 29 vs. Rutgers

Oct. 5 vs. Iowa

Oct. 12 @Illinois

Oct. 19 @Penn State

Oct. 26 vs. Notre Dame

Nov. 2 @Maryland

Nov. 9 BYE WEEK

Nov. 16 vs. Michigan State

Nov. 23 @Indiana

Nov. 30 vs. Ohio State

Dec. 7 Big Ten Championship Game*

*If Michigan wins the Big Ten East

Following that bye week, Michigan has five-straight Big Ten games (including road games vs. Wisconsin on Sept. 21 and Penn State on Oct. 19) before Notre Dame comes to the Big House on Oct. 26.

Michigan wraps up their regular season on Nov. 30 by hosting Ohio State.
