While the Wolverines' nine conference opponents remained unchanged, some of the dates did change.

Michigan's road game at Nebraska has been moved up to Oct. 9 after being previously scheduled for Oct. 30. The Wolverines have a bye on Oct. 16; that date was originally supposed to be the date of the Michigan State game, and the bye was originally scheduled for Oct. 23.

Now, U-M will host Northwestern on Oct. 23, when that game was previously scheduled for Nov. 6. And in Week 10 on Nov. 6, U-M will play Indiana in a game that was previously scheduled for Oct. 9.
