With the college football season on the horizon, Colin Cowherd revealed his predictions for several teams from Power Five programs. The FS1 radio host unveiled which teams could disappoint and which might surprise everyone.
Cowherd is usually supportive of the Michigan Wolverines, and his stance on the football program hasn’t changed heading into next season.
Michigan has a ton of talent returning to Ann Arbor this fall, such as Shea Patterson, Nico Collins and Khaleke Hudson. Combine this experienced group with Jim Harbaugh and that should create a winning formula.
Even though Michigan has dealt with its share of shortcomings, Cowherd thinks this upcoming season will be different. He’ll be taking the over on the team’s win total projection, which is already pretty high to begin with.
“I’m gonna take Michigan over 9.5 wins,” Cowherd said. “Just a lot of guaranteed wins against the bottom and middle of the Big Ten. I don’t think they’re a national championship winning team, but they may end up in the Playoff because of their returners, their quarterback and their schedule.”

It’s time for @ColinCowherd’s 🔒s for the 2019 college football season!

Taking the over on Michigan’s win total would put them to at least a 10-2 record.
Another advantage for the Wolverines is that their toughest games on the schedule take place at home. This includes their annual clash with the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Do you think Michigan wins 10 or more games?
