The Michigan schedule has several quirks in 2016, 2017. - Leon Halip

With the Big Ten's announcement Thursday, Michigan's 2016 schedule is officially completed.

The Big Ten released the conference schedules for the 2016 and 2017 football seasons Thursday.

The league is switching from an eight-game schedule to a nine-game schedule in 2016.

According to a press release, teams from the East Division will host five conference home games during even numbered years and teams from the West Division will host five conference home games during odd number years. Michigan is in the East.

Michigan renews its rivalry with Wisconsin in 2016, which will be the first meeting between the two schools since 2010. The rivalry with Ohio State will also remain at the end of the season.

Michigan's 2016 is now complete, as it already has agreements in place to play against Hawaii, Colorado and Ball State. However, Michigan only has one non-conference game scheduled for 2017, a Sept. 9 matchup against Cincinnati.
