Michigan Announces FB Scheduling Changes

Michigan moved a number of steps closer to completing its 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 schedules today.

Michigan moved a number of steps closer to completing its 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 schedules today.

The first notable addition to Michigan's future schedule is Central Florida. The Knights will visit the Big House for the first ever match-up between the two programs on September 10th, 2016. Coach George O'Leary's team has made waves this year with road victories and Penn State and Louisville, while also narrowly losing to South Carolina at home. The Ball State contest that had been scheduled for September 24th, 2016 will be played at a yet to be determined date.

Air Force will return to Michigan Stadium for the third time on September 16th, 2017. The Cadets pushed the Wolverines to the limit in 2012 before falling 31-25.

The biggest name amongst the additions is Arkansas. The Razorbacks agreed to a home and home with the Maize & Blue. Michigan will host the program led by former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema for the 2018 season opener on September 1st. The Wolverines will then return the favor with a trip to Arkansas on August 31st, 2019.

The final addition was a one-game agreement for a match-up with Southern Methodist University at Michigan Stadium on September 15th, 2018.
