Now, I know what you’re thinking. National Powerhouse?! More like has-been. I know, and trust me I know just how bad Michigan is right now. This season, I will be surprised if they surpass seven wins. Actually, a seven-win season might not be too bad for the Wolverines.

  • Anyway, this is a FUTURE game. NO. The Wolverines will not be any good this season or next season or maybe even the season after that, but if you wanted to schedule an opponent for 2021 that doesn’t have a lot of national respect now that will four years from now, the Wolverines are the team for you.

    Clemson and Michigan have never faced each other on the football field and about this time is where the Wolverines would be rebounding from a drought of several years. They would be becoming nationally relevant again under Head Coach Jim McElwain and would possibly be a top-15 team to begin the season.

    Clemson would have a chance to visit “The Big House” and test their strengths against that of another high-caliber opponent. Michigan would then have to turn around the next season and travel down to Death Valley where they would see you can be louder with 85,000 fans in Clemson than you could ever be with 110,000 fans up in Michigan.

    I think this game would bring a ton of national respect to the Clemson football program and would definitely be a measuring stick to see how good the Tigers’ sustained success could be.

    These are just five options for the upcoming seasons, but what are your thoughts, Clemson fans? Who would you schedule if you had the opportunity? What stadiums would you want to visit or what teams would you want to see travel to Death Valley? Comment Below!
