MI football cancels upcoming series with Virginia Tech


The University of Michigan Athletic Department made the announcement Thursday.

And according to Bitter, Virginia Tech and MI haven't ruled out the possibility of playing a home-and-home series at some other time during the next decade.

This is the second high-profile home-and-home football series that MI has canceled in the last two years.

The Hokies and Wolverines will no longer meet on the gridiron as originally scheduled.

The Rams will play three power conference opponents this fall with a neutral site game against Colorado, a home game against Arkansas, and a road game at Florida to start the season. They'll play in Ann Arbor in 2021. The away game has also been canceled and MI is paying Virginia Tech a $375,000 cancellation fee for striking the two games.

As a result of the series cancellation, MI has moved up their home game in 2021 against the Washington Huskies by one week.

As a result of the Arkansas State addition, Michigan's 2020 schedule is now complete. The two schools are playing each other in the 2020 season opener (Sept. 5) at Huskies Stadium in Seattle. The Red Wolves will be facing U-M for the first time ever. With Colorado moving on filling its non-conference schedule without the Rams, Colorado State found another Pac-12 school to help fill some vacancies on the future schedule.
