Michigan is going to earn its frequent flier miles this fall. The Wolverines are prepping to play a schedule that features multiple trips away from home before Big Ten play begins. When speaking to the media on Wednesday, John Beilein admitted that this year’s slate could provide a more difficult early season stretch.
“There’s going to be some challenges this year going on the road that we didn’t really have last year early,” Beilein explained.
Last year the Wolverines went 13-0 in non-conference play but only played one true road game, at Bradley, along with three games in New York City. This year the Wolverines will be on the road in just their third game of the season and that’s only the start of a daunting schedule. The Wolverines will have a rematch against Iowa State, who they beat at home two seasons ago. Beilein admitted it wasn’t supposed to happen like that but he’s ready to deal with it.
