There’s the task at hand of getting back on track against Indiana this weekend, but the Michigan Wolverines found out the details of its upcoming matchup with Wisconsin on Nov. 14.
According to a release on Monday, the Wolverines and Badgers’ showdown is set for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff from Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor and will be televised via ABC.

Of course, the possibility exists that this game could not be played depending on the status of Wisconsin’s COVID-19 outbreak within the program. Over the weekend, it was reported that over 20 players and staff members had contracted the novel virus. If the game does get played, it would see a depleted quarterback depth chart for the Badgers with Jack Coan injured and Graham Mertz and Chase Wolf in the Big Ten’s 21-day coronavirus protocol.
Michigan holds a 51-16-1 advantage all time against the Badgers, but the series has been much closer than that in recent years. The Wolverines are 2-2 against Wisconsin under Jim Harbaugh with both of the victories coming at home. Wisconsin is 6-4 against Michigan since 2005.
The 2020 edition of the Badgers have not played since a 45-7 opening week victory over Illinois, who is dealing with coronavirus issues of its own.
