The Wolverines will be welcoming a storied college program into Ann Arbor in about 11 years time.
The University of Michigan announced on Monday that a home-and-home football series against the University of Oklahoma is set to take place during the 2025 and 2026 seasons. The 2025 match-up will be the second time both schools have played each other. The previous match-up was last played in 1976, a 14-6 Sooner victory over the Wolverines in the Orange Bowl.
"We are excited to reach an agreement to play Oklahoma, one of the storied programs in college football history," said U-M Athletic Director Dave Brandon in a statement. "I appreciate Joe (Castiglione) and his team’s effort to make this series a possibility. Oklahoma and Michigan have always been regarded as two of the top programs in college football, and creating this type of match-up is great for fans of both programs and the game of college football."
Oklahoma will host the first game on Sept. 6, 2025, and will make a visit to Michigan Stadium the following year on Sept. 12.
The kickoff times and network will be determined by each conference at a later date.
