Michigan football and Washington will indeed complete their home-and-home series.

The two schools announced Friday that they have rescheduled last season’s game that was supposed to take place at Washington but was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The game will now be played Sept. 9, 2028.

The two teams were originally scheduled to play Sept. 5, 2020, but the pandemic led to suspensions of college football from both the Big Ten and Pac-12; when both conferences returned to competition later in the fall, they played conference-only schedules.

Michigan will host the Huskies on Sept. 11 (8 p.m., ABC) this season in what would’ve been the second and final leg of the home-and-home. It will be the second game of the season for Michigan, which opens the year against Western Michigan on Sept. 4 at home.

U-M's third nonconference opponent this year is Northern Illinois on Sept. 18.
