Well, the first of the two "huge" schedule announcements, according to Dave Brandon, came down this afternoon and it's a good one. Michigan will play Washington in a home-and-home series in 2020 and 2021.
Via UM press release:
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan and University of Washington will renew an old rivalry when the two football programs meet for a home-and-home series during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. This will be the 13th and 14th meetings between the two schools.
The Wolverines will travel to Seattle, Wash., for the match-up on Sept. 5, 2020, at Husky Stadium. The return trip by the Huskies will take place at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 18, 2021.
“We are excited to rekindle a rivalry that has showcased some great games and great teams for both programs,” said Brady Hoke, U-M’s J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach. “There have been some exciting, down-to-the-wire football games between Michigan and Washington and we anticipate the same type of contests when this series is played at the outset of the next decade.”
Not sure who the other major opponent will be, although speculation that it could be Texas has been swirling...which would be absolutely huge. But again, pure speculation right now.
