Michigan football Without Cable

Getty Quarterback Cade McNamara of the Michigan Wolverines will lead the offense.

Entering the season unranked for the first time since Brady Hoke’s final campaign, Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines are hoping to rebound from last year’s disappointing 2-4 season.

In 2021, Michigan games will be televised on either ABC, Big Ten Network, ESPN, Fox or Fox Sports 1.

But if you don’t have cable, here are some different ways you can watch a live stream of every Michigan football game online:

Michigan 2021 Season Preview

The Wolverines also finished 2-4 in the Big Ten Conference in 2020, and they didn’t win a game at home. Michigan scored 28.3 points a game, and they were outscored 59-42 in the first quarter.

Harbaugh announced Cade McNamara will be the team’s starting quarterback this season after the young signal-caller showed promise last season. In four games last year, McNamara completed 61 percent of his throws for 425 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. He’ll need to get the team off to faster starts this season if they want to compete in more games.

Harbaugh says his team has had a good offseason of preparatory work, and he feels good about where they are heading into the start of the season. “Well, been through a very good winter cycle. Been through a really good spring practice. Summer cycle of training. We’ve been through a fall camp. One thing that’s been consistent has been the energy of our team, the enthusiasm of the club. And I think that’s been generated by both the coaches and the players,” he said on August 30.

On defense, the Wolverines surrendered 34.5 points a game and were equally bad against the run and the pass, allowing 14 rushing scores and 12 passing TDs.

Harbaugh made some changes, going to the NFL to find his next defensive coordinator. He poached Baltimore Ravens assistant coach Mike Macdonald, who had been working with his brother John. He also more names on both sides of the ball, including Ravens assistant Matt Weiss, who is set to be his new quarterbacks coach. The two had worked together at Stanford, when Weiss served as Harbaugh’s assistant.

So far, the Wolverines coach has liked what he has seen from his ‘D’ in practice. “I think the thing that strikes me [about the defense], and the thing I noticed early on, is the amount of communication. That’s communication on the field and also on the sidelines. Guys coaching guys and guys talking. Guys spitting out the calls,” Harbaugh said this week.

Michigan will face Western Michigan out of the gate, and close their season out against longtime rival Ohio State.
