Keeping up with the scheduling news this offseason, Michigan and Virginia Tech have announced plans for a future home-and-home series. The dates? Way down the road in 2020 and 2021.

Michigan will host Virginia Tech in Ann Arbor on Sept. 19, 2020 with the Hokies playing host the following year on Sept. 11, per a joint release.

“I am pleased that Dave Brandon and I have been able to work out this agreement,” Tech athletic director Jim Weaver  said in a statement. “Michigan is the winningest college football program in the country, and it will be exciting to have the Wolverines come to Lane Stadium.”

The two sides have met just once before in the 2012 Allstate Sugar Bowl, a 23-20 Wolverines victory (depending on whether or not you think Danny Coale caught the ball in overtime).

Virginia Tech’s other future non-conference opponents include Ohio State (2014-15) and Wisconsin (2016-17). The Wolverines have recently scheduled a home-and-home series against Arkansas (2018-19).

    Now they just need to give the students back assigned seating by year in school. Rising seniors and juniors that suffered in the upper edges of the stadium and earned the right to have reserved lower seating will now have to show up hours early to get a decent seat.

    2020? That’s over 2,400 days away. That’s a really, really, really, really long period of time. But I guess if any fanbase would know that, it would be UM’s.

    Be the 1st and only time Beamer will be outweighed by the opposing head coach.

    There’s at least a 50/50 chance we’ll be in the same conference by then anyways.

    Wonder if Ohio State will still have a cream puff, first-half of the season by then?

    Heck, they might even add North Texas by then.

    Pole, OSU usually does have a cream puff to start the season and always has one the last game of the year too.
