Michigan's five toughest games of 2016

Many analysts believe that Michigan has a chance to win the Big Ten, but they will have to get through these teams first.

5. Penn State – September 24

Penn State has finished with a winning record each of the last 11 seasons.

4. Wisconsin – October 1

Wisconsin has made a bowl every season since 2002.

3. at Iowa – November 12

The Hawkeyes return 13 starters from last season’s 12-0 team.

2. at Michigan State – October 29

This will be the first meeting between these teams since last year’s improbable fumble return.

1. at Ohio State – November 26

J.T. Barrett returns for the Buckeyes and many believe that this game will decide the Big Ten East.
