The Michigan Wolverines and Washington Huskies have announced Wednesday they will play a home-and-home football series in 2020 and 2021.
The first meeting will take place at Washington on September 5, 2020. The Huskies will then travel to Ann Arbor the following year on September 18, 2021.
The two have a rich history facing off against one another. They have met four times in the Rose Bowl, splitting at two wins a piece. The Wolverines lead the all-time series 7-5 and won their last meeting in 2002, 31-29.
Michigan has added impressive opponents for their future schedules that includes Utah (2014 and2015), Florida (2017), Arkansas (2018 and 2019), Virginia Tech (2020 and 2021 ), UCLA (2022 and 2023), and Oklahoma (2025 and 2026).
Michigan head coach Brady Hoke is excited about the opportunity to play Washington again.
“There have been some exciting, down-to-the-wire football games between Michigan and Washington, and we anticipate the same type of contests when this series is played at the outset of the next decade,” Hoke stated.
Michigan and Washington both open up the 2014 season on August 30, against Appalachian State and Hawaii respectively.
