It appears that two historic programs will be playing each other in the near future.

Michigan announced on Wednesday that it has agreed to a home-and-home series with the University of Texas, the first time in both school's history that the two programs will meet for a home-and-home series.

"A match-up of this magnitude doesn't come along all that often, and when it does its special for both programs and the great fans that support each institution," said Brady Hoke in a statement. "This also is a special series for all fans of college football, and I anticipate great games just like the first contest played between the two programs."

Michigan will host Texas on Aug. 31, 2024 and will travel to Austin for the second game on Sept. 4, 2027.

The only previous match-up between the two schools occurred in the 2005 Rose Bowl. A 37-yard field goal in the waning seconds of the game lifted Texas to a 37-34 victory over Michigan.
