The Michigan Wolverines announced today (Wednesday, June 27) updates to the non-conference schedules for the 2014-16 football seasons and the future schedule with Notre Dame. The Wolverines will play a slate that includes teams from the Pac-12, Mountain West and Mid-American conferences as well as independent Notre Dame.

Michigan will play three of its four non-conference games at the Big House in 2014.

The Wolverines will open the season against Appalachian State at Michigan Stadium on Aug. 30 before traveling to Notre Dame in the second week of the season (Sept. 6). U-M will host Miami (Ohio) on Sept. 13 before finishing the non-conference slate Sept. 20 with the front end of a home-and-home with Utah.


In 2015, the Wolverines will face the Utes on a Thursday night (Sept. 3) in Salt Lake City, Utah. This will be the first college football game of the 2015 season and will also be the first time that U-M has played a Thursday night football game in school history. Following the trip West, Michigan returns to Ann Arbor for three straight home games: Notre Dame (Sept. 12), Oregon State (Sept. 19) and UNLV (Sept. 26).

The 2016 season schedule is half complete with an agreement to face Colorado at the Big House on Sept. 17. This game will be played one week after a trip to Notre Dame (Sept. 10). The Wolverines have openings for home games on Sept. 3 and Sept. 24.

In addition, Michigan and Notre Dame will take a two-year hiatus in their long-standing rivalry during the 2018 and 2019 seasons.   Both schools intend to resume the rivalry in the years following.
