The Big Ten conference announced a revised football schedule for the Michigan Wolverines for the upcoming 2021 season on Friday with a handful of notable changes.
Chief among them is the expected location swap of the Indiana and Michigan State games. The Wolverines have played in Bloomington against the Hoosiers the last two seasons while also hosting the Spartans at home two years in a row. They also keep the Ohio State game at home this year despite the Columbus date being canceled this past season.
