Michigan will face Michigan State, Indiana, Nebraska, Penn State, Ohio State, Illinois and Wisconsin twice in the fall. Five of those seven teams were NCAA Tournament teams in 2013 with Penn State and Wisconsin meeting in the NCAA Tournament championship match.
The Wolverines will have six one-play matchups inside the Big Ten schedule. U-M will face Iowa, Northwestern and Minnesota at home. The three road trips include first-time conference opponents Maryland and Rutgers, as well as Purdue.
