The Big Ten announced the 2021-22 conference schedule which means that Michigan’s 2021-22 docket is officially set.
The Wolverines will play at Nebraska (Dec. 7) and vs. Minnesota (during the December window of Big Ten games. They’ll re-open conference play in 2022 at Rutgers (Jan. 4) after their trip to Orlando to face UCF on December 30th.
The non-conference schedule is headlined by games against Seton Hall, San Diego State and North Carolina. The Wolverines are also playing in a preseason tournament in Las Vegas that features a matchup with UNLV and then either Arizona or Wichita State.
The Wolverines play Illinois, Michigan State, Purdue, Ohio State, Rutgers, Iowa and Nebraska twice. They have single-play games at Indiana, Penn State and Wisconsin with home single-plays against Maryland, Minnesota and Northwestern. Other than Michigan, there have been four teams pegged in most preseason top 25s — Purdue, Illinois, Ohio State and Maryland — and the Wolverines play three of those contenders twice in the conference slate.
Michigan’s first game against Michigan State is scheduled for January 8th at the Crisler Center.
Michigan’s season wraps up with a trip to Ohio State on March 6th.
