The Michigan Wolverines have been waiting on clarity on what their schedule would look like for the rest of the season. It was provided to them by the Big Ten on Friday night with a pair of rescheduled games added to the slate.
The Wolverines had five of their games postponed following a two-week shutdown of all U-M athletics on Jan. 23. Two of those contests have been re-added, while some other dates have been moved around.
Michigan will now take on the Iowa Hawkeyes on Feb. 25 in a game that was moved up from March 4. The much-anticipated matchup with Illinois has been added back to the schedule and will take place at Crisler Center in Ann Arbor on March 2.
The Wolverines will then close out the regular season with a pair of games against the Michigan State Spartans. MSU will come to Crisler on March 4, while Michigan will travel up to East Lansing for the finale on March 7.
Here is what the full schedule looks like for the rest of the year after the updates:

— Feb. 21 at Ohio State

These changes bring Michigan to 17 total conference games and have them finishing the year having played everyone in the conference. KenPom has the 15-1 (10-1 in conference play) finishing the season with a record of 19-3 with the lone projected loss the rest of the way coming at OSU on Sunday.
