Michigan will come to Husky Stadium on Sept. 5, 2020, and the Huskies will play at Ann Arbor on Sept. 11, 2021, continuing a 60-year history that includes four Rose Bowl matchups among 12 all-time meetings.
Game on for Washington and Michigan.
The Huskies have confirmed that their home-and-home series against the Michigan Wolverines — originally announced in 2014 — will indeed be played at planned, with one small update.
Michigan will come to Husky Stadium to open the 2020 season on Sept. 5, as previously scheduled. The Huskies’ 2021 return trip to Ann Arbor, meanwhile, has been pushed up a week, now set for Sept. 11.
Michigan scheduled the home-and-home with UW before Jim Harbaugh became the coach at his alma mater in 2015. After Harbaugh’s arrival, Michigan officials had expressed interest in backing out of the UW series. The Huskies did not want to cancel.
