Michigan Football Preview and Prediction: Big Ten Conference; 2 Road Games at Night

Close
ESPN layoffs see 100 employees face cuts

The Big Ten Conference College Football Games has been announced by the ESPN. In the list, Michigan will open at Rutgers and close at Iowa.

This means the second visit to High Point Solutions by Michigan football team. During the first encounter in 2014, Rutgers claimed the throne with 26-24. This year, it will take place on October 7, 7 or 8 pm, as published by ESPN. Rashan Gary's team will head to Iowa at Kinnick Stadium on November 12, 7 or 8 pm.

Way Too Early Top 25

The Michigan Wolverines football team earns huge public attention as it is in the first position considered as 'way too early' by the poll. The team managed to secure top 10 of Signing Day class.

Michigan Wolverines previous matches and records

In 2009, Michigan played in Iowa City at night against Iowa Hawkeye and their visit in 2013 was a cold game with harsh temperature of 18 degrees - marking it as the coldest in stadium kickoff history. This year's game will be aired on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC. With four games, all on the road, the 2016 schedule lists comprises two games happening after dark.

For the record, Michigan Wolverines's Jehu Chesson ranks as one of the 25 fastest players. The previously injured athlete was not able to earn the winning title but he deserves two thumbs up after his 96-yard kick return for a touchdown, playing against Northwestern. The Bleacher Report also published an article of the speedy Chesson on the game.

The Rutgers game prediction

Meanwhile, the Rutgers game might be favoring the Wolverines since many recruits will join the team. The prospects are eligible for 2017 class and if the game is at night, everyone would be able to attend the big match supporting the team. Although this is the first time for Wolverines on road, this is actually the third time matchups.
