Washington is doing its part to continue what’s been a nation-wide push from (most of) the Power Conference members to strength their future out-of-conference matchups.
In that vein, UW announced Wednesday they have scheduled a pair of future home-and-home series with Michigan and BYU. The Wolverines will travel to Seattle Sept. 5, 2020, while UM will play host to the Huskies Sept. 18, 2021, in Ann Arbor.
Prior to that series, the Huskies will play host to BYU Sept. 29, 2018, and will travel to Provo on Sept. 21, 2019.
“We are excited about our future football schedules,” Huskies athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement. “Our goal is to win championships, and we will continue to work to supplement our challenging Pac-12 slate with games that are both exciting for our fans and beneficial for our program.”
UM and UW have faced each other 12 times previously, with four of those matchups coming in the Rose Bowl. UW and BYU have played nine times, the last coming in 2013 in the Fight Hunger Bowl.
UW also announced that, “due to conflicts with its Big Ten Conference schedule, Wisconsin was forced to cancel its two games with the Huskies, previously scheduled for 2018 and 2021.”
