Looks like the Michigan football team won’t be the only team at the university taking on Western Michigan in 2018.

John Beilein and the basketball team are also set for a meeting with the Broncos, according to Tony Paul of The Detroit News.

The game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 15. Paul is also reporting WMU will be paid $90,000 for the game.

Thanks to Paul’s report, 29 of Michigan’s games for the upcoming season have been revealed, with still a couple more to go.

WMU was 17-15 last season and 9-9 in the Mid-American Conference. Unfortunately for the Broncos, their leading scorer from last season — Thomas Wilder — graduated from the university. Wilder originally entered the NBA Draft process last year, but withdrew his name and returned for his senior season.
