Let's take a look at the schedule Michigan football will face next season.

Michigan suffered a subpar (for the Wolverines) season after finishing the 2017 campaign with an 8-4 mark.

Next up for the Wolverines is a tough South Carolina, but we can't help but wonder what next year holds for Michigan.

With that being said, let's take a look at the Wolverines' 2018 schedule and predict Michigan's record. With the impending arrival of quarterback Shea Patterson, we'll assume he's eligible to play for the 2018 season.

9/1: Michigan 38, Notre Dame 31

9/8: Michigan 42Western Michigan 17

9/15: Michigan 31, SMU 13

9/22: Michigan 27Nebraska 20

9/29: Northwestern 24, Michigan 17

10/6: Michigan 38, Maryland 23

10/13: Michigan 31Wisconsin 27

10/20: Michigan 20, Michigan State 16

10/27: Bye

11/3: Penn State 37, Michigan 24

11/10: Michigan 45, Rutgers 13

11/17: Michigan 28, Indiana 14

11/24: Michigan 38, Ohio State 27

After getting beat down for six consecutive years, the Wolverines finally answer behind new quarterback Shea Patterson who will be eligible to play for the 2018 season.

A 10-2 mark will put Michigan in a very respectable bowl game, although the Wolverines might not make a New Year's Six game after finishing third in the Big Ten East yet again.
