Win Over Wisconsin the Start of Michigan's 'Revenge Tour,' Chase Winovich says

Last night’s 38-13 win over Wisconsin was a big win for the Michigan football program. They needed a big statement win over a tough opponent and they got it with ease. This is just the beginning though as the team is looking for blood as they are making a push in the Big Ten and towards a college football playoff spot.

“The revenge tour has officially commenced,” Michigan defensive end Chase Winovich said. “I was thinking about putting that for my next Instagram post.”

He isn’t wrong either as Michigan has opponents from last year’s schedule that they lost to in their way. First, it was Wisconsin, a team that it lost to last season 24-10. Next up is in-state rival Michigan State, who it lost to last year 14-10.

That game will be very personal as it is an in-state rivalry game first off, but this game brings out the best in both teams and no matter the record of either team, it has been a close game lately as the last three games have been decided under 10 points. Both teams played in a monsoon last season and this year, so far, the weather looks to be clear and not a factor.

After Michigan State, Michigan will have a bye week to get some rest, but then it hosts Penn State as there will be two big factors against the Nittany Lions. The first, obviously being revenge from last year’s embarrassment of a 42-13 loss, but that was in Happy Valley in a whiteout and with now-New York Giants phenom RB Saquon Barkley. Another reason for the Wolverines wanting to beat Penn State is the losses that the Nittany Lions have this year. They blew a 12 point lead against Ohio State, at home, in a whiteout and just this week they let an unranked Michigan State team come in and upset them.

After those two games, Michigan has Indiana and Rutgers, teams that it beat last year, but then the attention turns to Ohio State, the final team on the “revenge tour.”

Michigan lost at home last year to Ohio State, 31-20 in what was a winnable game, dropped by the Wolverines, but this year the game is in Columbus, so the atmosphere will be against them. Ohio State will have Heisman Trophy candidate Dwayne Haskins leading the charge against the Wolverines, but we can talk more about the Buckeyes and cross that bridge when we come to it.

For now, the next team on the tour is Michigan State in East Lansing and while MSU is coming in with huge confidence after beating a top 10 team on the road, Michigan is coming in with even more confidence after a top 15 victory in a statement game that they didn’t just win — they dominated.

This Saturday, Oct. 20 at noon, will be another interesting chapter between the two teams as both are fighting for their season.
