ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan will soon get a chance to accomplish something it failed to do last season.

The Wolverines were winless at home during the pandemic-shortened season.

They finished 2020 with two wins, four losses and three games canceled due to a COVID-19 breakout.

Michigan hosts Western Michigan on Saturday.

The Wolverines are unranked in the preseason for the first time since coach Jim Harbaugh’s debut season in 2015.

The Broncos were 4-2 last season, playing only Mid-American Conference schools.

They return 19 starters on both sides of the ball, including quarterback Kaleb Eleby.
