Michigan’s 2018 schedule has some tough games.

Michigan will face off against South Carolina in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1, but many fans are already excited for the upcoming season—especially with the announcement that Michigan landed Ole Miss transfer Shea Patterson. After a sup-par year in which the Wolverines struggled to find a signal-caller, Patterson should be able to take over as the starter from the time he arrives in Ann Arbor.

With that in mind, here's the schedule for Michigan's 2018 season:

9/1: Michigan at Notre Dame

9/8: Western Michigan at Michigan

9/15: SMU at Michigan

9/22: Nebraska at Michigan

9/29: Michigan at Northwestern

10/6: Maryland at Michigan

10/13: Wisconsin at Michigan

10/20: Michigan at Michigan State

10/27: Bye

11/3: Penn State at Michigan

11/10: Michigan at Rutgers

11/17: Indiana at Michigan

11/24: Michigan at Ohio State

The two toughest games? The season finale against Ohio State will obviously be the toughest game of the season, but as for the other, it's probably the season-opener versus Notre Dame. The Wolverines will be playing in South Bend with a raucous crowd in the stands, and with a top ten recruiting class coming in, the Fighting Irish will be every bit as good as they were this past year.
