9/19 PENN STATE

10/10 OFF WEEK

WHAT CHANGED IN THE SCHEDULE
The Big Ten announced in early July that all non-conference games for football would be canceled and that football would be moving to a 10-game all-conference schedule. Michigan was scheduled to go out west to face Washington on Sept. 5. The Wolverines were also scheduled to host Ball State on Sept. 12 and Arkansas State on Sept. 19.
As for the Big Ten schedule, Michigan adds a cross-divisional game against Northwestern on Nov. 21. That is the only addition from their original nine-game conference schedule. The Wolverines also had two location changes from their original schedule. Michigan was scheduled to travel to East Lansing to face Michigan State. That game will be in Ann Arbor on Oct. 3. Also, Michigan was going to host Indiana. Instead, the Wolverines will travel to Bloomington on Oct. 17 to face the Hoosiers.
The biggest change in Michigan’s schedule is the new date of “THE GAME.” Michigan and Ohio State will not be the last game on the schedule. The Wolverines and Buckeyes will play on Oct. 24.
Ohio State and Michigan are now scheduled to play on Oct. 24, the first time they’ll meet before November since 1933.

Yes, if the Michigan vs. Ohio State game is played, it will be the first time since 1933 that it is not played in the month of November.
How do you think Michigan will fare in this shortened season? COMMENT BELOW
