U-M announces 2016-18 football schedules

Michigan announced its 2016-18 football schedules Wednesday afternoon.

With the official announcement, the Wolverines confirmed several new future matchups: a home game vs. Central Florida on Sept. 10, 2016, which bumped a previously announced game vs. Ball State off the 2016 schedule; a home game vs. Air Force on Sept. 16, 2017; and a home game vs. Southern Methodist (SMU) on Sept. 15, 2018.

The 2017 and 2018 schedules are not yet officially complete. By then the Big Ten will play nine conference games, and the Wolverines have just two nonconference opponents listed (Cincinnati and Air Force in 2017, Arkansas and SMU in 2018), with room left for one more.

Although not yet officially announced, a leaked schedule from BTN.com (saved for posterity by The Daily Collegian) shows that Michigan will play a neutral-site game vs. Florida to open the 2017 season and will honor their commitment to play Ball State (bumped for the Central Florida game) on the second week of the 2018 schedule.

Here are the schedules from 2014-19. Games that have not been officially announced are in italics:

The Wolverines have not completed their nonconference schedules past the 2018 season. The lone announced nonconference game in 2019 is a return trip to Arkansas. The Big Ten has not set conference schedules past the 2019 season, either.

But Michigan has announced interesting nonconference matchups in the distant futures. The team will play Virginia Tech in a home-and-home series, with a game in Ann Arbor Sept. 19, 2020 and a game in Blacksburg, Va. Sept. 11, 2021.

Michigan has also announced a future series with UCLA that will include a home game (Sept. 10, 2022) and a game in the Rose Bowl (Sept. 9, 2023).
