Michigan’s 2016-17 Big Ten opponents were unveiled today.

  • Double plays: Michigan State, Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska and Wisconsin.
  • Home only: Maryland, Ohio State, Penn State and Purdue 
  • Road only: Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern and Rutgers

The matchups were first reported by MLive’s Brendan Quinn.

Find more confirmed scheduled games on our future schedules page. Michigan will host Virginia Tech and travel to UCLA and Cincinnati in the non-conference season, while also participating in the 2K Sports Classic at Madison Square Garden, an event which features Pitt, SMU and Marquette.

John Beilein told reporters last week that the schedule is almost complete and the Wolverines hope to add one additional high-major opponent to the mix.

    Glad we have 2 games against IU, MSU and Wisconsin. I think it is good to have Maryland and OSU and Purdue at home only. The road only slate is not daunting outside of Iowa. I like the schedule.

      Even Iowa is not projected very high.

  • Champswest

    This looks like a very doable 13-5 schedule or better.

  • Wayman Britt

    I am not as optimistic as Champswest. Based on Beilein did not pick up any graduate transfer to help immediately and losing Dawkins, I see UM at 5th in the conference with a 11-7 or maybe 12 – 6 record.
