BYU schedules Michigan as 2015 football schedule takes shape

Dave Reginek

The Cougars and Wolverines will meet for the first time in the regular season.

The BYU football program announced a football game against the Michigan Wolverines on Tuesday. The game is scheduled for September 26, 2015 for Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

BYU and Michigan have played only once. Robbie Bosco and the Cougars beat Michigan 24-17 in the 1984 Holiday Bowl, the final step on the path to 13-0 and the 1984 National Championship.

Michigan Stadium, known as the Big House, holds just less than 110,000 fans at capacity. BYU also opens the 2015 season at Nebraska, where the Cornhuskers play in an 81,000-seat Memorial Stadium.

Athletic director Tom Holmoe said that he hopes to develop a long-term relationship with Michigan. While this may very well happen, for the moment, it seems this will be a one-time game. It seems to be that Nebraska is more likely to develop into a multi-game series.

With the addition of Michigan, the 2015 schedule now has at least eight games scheduled, and here is what the immediate future looks like for BYU football schedules:

2013

HOME: Texas, Boise State, Utah, Georgia Tech, Middle Tennessee
AWAY: Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Houston, Utah State, Hawaii

2014

HOME: Houston, Utah State, Hawaii, Southern Miss
AWAY: Texas, Boise State, Central Florida, Middle Tennessee

2015

HOME: Cincinnati, Boise State, Utah State
AWAY: Nebraska, Michigan, Hawaii, Southern Miss (and possibly Notre Dame)
