Guest Predictor: William Drysdale (3rd Grade)
The 2021 College Football season is upon us and this coming Saturday, the unranked Michigan Wolverines will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2020 campaign when they take the field against Western Michigan.
Rather than doing my own game-by-game predictions this season, I figured it would be fun to hand the reins over to my son William, who may be the biggest Wolverines fan that I know.
As you can see below, William believes Michigan will come out of the gates quickly by winning all four of their games in September by a combined score of 183-36 before dropping their first game in October at Wisconsin.
When it comes to the Wolverines’ biggest rivals, William has them disposing of Michigan State rather easily but getting stomped in the Big House by Ohio State.
