Michigan will host the Cincinnati Bearcats at Michigan Stadium in 2017, a team struggling to find a home in a flourishing athletic conference.

Michigan continues to beef up its future non-conference football schedule with teams that have some name recognition.

Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News reported Wednesday that U-M will host Cincinnati at the Big House on Sept. 9, 2017. The report also states there is no return game for Michigan to visit the Bearcats.

Michigan will reportedly pay the Bearcats $1.2 million to visit Michigan Stadium.

U-M and UC have never played against each other in football.

Michigan currently has no other non-conference games scheduled for 2017, but the team will host Arkansas in 2018 and make the return visit to Fayetteville in 2019.

Chengelis also reported that Michigan’s basketball team will play a home-and-home series against UC in 2015 and 2018; however, no dates or locations have been announced yet.

Michigan leads the basketball series 3-1.

Wolverines’ athletic director Dave Brandon reportedly told Chengelis that Cincinnati has been an important recruiting area for the Maize and Blue, which is one reason why both schools agreed to play three games against each other.
