What to Know

The Western Michigan Broncos and the Michigan Wolverines will face off at noon ET Sept. 4 at Michigan Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. WMU was on the positive side of .500 (4-2) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year. Meanwhile, last year was nothing to brag about for Michigan (2-4), so the team is looking forward to a new start.

Since the experts predict a defeat, the Broncos will need to dig deep. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.
