    The Central Michigan 2024 football schedule contains an out-of-conference slate that could bring optimism to Chippewas fans. They face three FBS teams — the San Diego State Aztecs, FIU Panthers, and Illinois Fighting Illini — who are coming off a losing campaign while their season-opener is against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils.

    At worst, the Chippewas should get two wins from their non-conference slate. However, the fun stops there, as the MAC element of the Central Michigan 2024 football schedule is brutal. They open with the Ball State Cardinals traveling to Mount Pleasant in Week 4. McElwain’s men haven’t beaten the Cardinals on home soil since a narrow win in 2016.

    You have to go back to 2010 to find the last time Central Michigan beat the Western Michigan Broncos at home, while the Bowling Green Falcons have won the previous two times they’ve faced the Chippewas on the road. One team that has struggled in Mount Pleasant is the Ohio Bobcats, who come to town in Week 7 looking for their first win on Chippewas soil since 2011.
