The Michigan Wolverines start off their season at home as they take on the Western Michigan Broncos.
The Wolverines will look to get a win at home, something they did not accomplish a year ago.
Although it may seem like an easy game, the Broncos are by no means a layup opponent.
Western Michigan Broncos
A year ago the Broncos finished 4-2 in a shortened season. Head Coach Tim Lester will look to build off of that in a full year.
One thing about this team is that they can score. The least amount of points they scored in 2020 was 27. I would not be shocked if they have some success on offense against the Wolverines.
The offense will be led by quarterback Kaleb Eleby. He will look to continue what he did last year.
For as good as the offense is, the defense needs improvement. It routinely gave up lots of yardage and points a year ago. The defense returns 9 players this year. They will certainly have their hands full when going against Michigan.
Jim Harbaugh will look to do better this year. If he has another bad year, I would not be surprised if he loses his job. In reality, we all know he should have been fired a little bit ago.
Saturday will be no easy matchup for these guys. The Wolverines cannot overlook a tough Western Michigan team.
Cade McNamara has been named the starting quarterback for this season. He does not have lots of experience as he has only made one career start.
I do not see the main issue for the Wolverines being offense in this game. I expect them to be efficient on offense in this contest.
The defense will be tested in week 1. The unit will have a new coordinator, Mike Macdonald. They will look to be better this year as lots of the starters return.
