The Michigan football schedule for 2024 and 2025 has been officially released, revealing a challenging lineup in the new Big Ten. With the addition of USC and UCLA, divisions have been removed in favor of protected rivals and a flex schedule for these seasons. Michigan’s two protected rivals are Ohio State and Michigan State, and the team has also been matched with Maryland for home and away games.
In 2024, Michigan faces a tough out-of-conference schedule with Texas, as well as road games against Ohio State and USC. The Wolverines will kick off the season with Fresno State on August 31, followed by Texas, Arkansas State, and multiple Big Ten matchups with dates yet to be confirmed.
The 2025 schedule appears similarly demanding, with six away games including a trip to Oklahoma. Michigan will host Ohio State and Penn State at the Big House. The order of the conference games will be announced at a later date.
With this knowledge of the upcoming season’s opponents, Michigan can prepare for the challenge and excitement ahead in Big Ten play.
