Of course the most important question, is "What is the soonest M can win the trophy?"
Here is Oklahoma's 2014 schedule:
|10/30/2014||at Iowa St|
|11/15/2014||at Texas Tech|
As you can see they do not play Michigan, nor do any of their opponents. So we have to go down a level.
LaTech's schedule is not set, but their non-conference schedule includes NORTHWESTERN State (boo), Auburn and Louisiana Lafayette. Nothing likely there.
After Oklahoma, Tennessee faces only SEC teams and Chattanooga, still not looking good.
Tulsa's schedule is also not finalized. After Oklahoma their only non-conference game is North Texas.
Then we get into conference schedules. It looks like Michigan's best chance again is going to be in Bowl season.
