Michigan Football Season is Historic for Truly Terrible Reason

The Michigan Wolverines will finish with their worst record under Jim Harbaugh in 2020. COVID-19 has made this an unstable college football season, and Michigan's roster has failed to rise above the turbulence, continually being beat down by fellow Big Ten teams.

With Saturday's matchup against the Maryland Terrapins getting postponed, it robs the Wolverines of their last chance to record a home win this season. That means this season will be historic for a truly bad reason: It's the first year ever that Michigan has failed to earn a home win.

That's an incredible fact, especially given that the team has won at least one home game since 1883.

The Wolverines earned an impressive 49-24 win over then-No. 21 Minnesota to begin the season. But Michigan then fell in all of three of its home games this year, against Michigan State, then-No. 13 Wisconsin, and Penn State, and has earned just one win since the season opener.

The Wolverines will conclude their season on the road against the No. 4 team in the nation, the Ohio State Buckeyes, on Dec. 12.
