Michigan’s first non-conference test comes in the Legends Classic, as the Wolverines kick that off facing Pittsburgh on Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. The next game will feature Michigan going up against former teammates, depending on how that first game goes, as the Wolverines will either play Frankie Collins and Arizona State or Brandon Johns, Zeb Jackson and VCU the following day.
There aren’t many things Michigan fans complain about more on social media than late tipoff times, but this season the Wolverines only have four games with a 9 p.m. start: the first conference game of the season at Minnesota on Dec. 8, the home game on Jan. 26 against Purdue, the game at Wisconsin on Valentine’s Day and the home game against Michigan State just four days later on Feb. 18.
Michigan will also have more than a few Sunday afternoon games this season. Those games include the game in London against Kentucky (Dec. 4), Ohio State (Feb. 5) and Wisconsin (Feb. 26).
