    So with the 20 game conference schedule, they are just flip flopping the 6 teams between double and single plays with Michigan State being our permanent rival. Will this ever be mixed up or is this rotation permanent?

    Also, the permanent rivalry is a thing, right? I know Michigan-Michigan State play twice every year but does every team have one?

    This is a pretty favorable schedule for Michigan. All three “road only” matchups are very winnable.
