Michigan announces future home non-conference games for 2021-2023

The future of Michigan’s football schedule is starting to fill out. The university announced today four opponents for future home games between 2021-2023.

For 2021, two MAC schools will be coming to The Big House in Ann Arbor, Western Michigan, and Northern Illinois. Western Michigan played the Wolverines in 2018, winning 49-3 and in 2021 they will be the season-opening matchup on Sept. 4. Michigan leads the series all time 7-0.

For NIU, Michigan will close out their non-conference play in 2021 against them. Michigan has only played NIU once, back in 2005 and won 33-17. They will play on Sept. 18.

In 2022, Michigan will host Colorado State for the first time ever, but they have played each other once before in the 1994 Holiday Bowl, which Michigan won 24-14. So for the first time ever they will play in a regular season game on Sept. 3.

2023 will bring another MAC opponent to Ann Arbor and that is Bowling Green State. Michigan is 2-0 in the series against Bowling Green State, with their last win coming in 2010 with a final score of 65-21.

With Western Michigan and NIU coming in 2021, that season’s schedule is currently filled. 2022 and 2023 still have one more opening.
