Washington and Michigan Game Set for Nationally-Televised Primetime Broadcast on ABC

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – ESPN and the Big Ten Conference announced today (Tuesday, May 18) that the Washington at Michigan football game scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, will be broadcast nationally by ABC at 7:30 p.m. ET. This will be the 13th all-time meeting between the Wolverines and Huskies and the fifth match-up played at Michigan Stadium.

The two programs were scheduled to play at Washington last season but that game was rescheduled due the COVID-19 pandemic that altered Big Ten and Pac-12 schedules.

U-M sports a 7-5 record against Washington. Michigan holds a 3-1 advantage in the previous four games contested at the Big House, while holding a 2-2 record at Washington and a 2-2 mark in Rose Bowl match-ups.

The Wolverines defeated the Huskies in 1953 (50-0), 1969 (45-7) and 2002 (31-29) at the Big House while losing a 20-11 contest in 1980. In the last meeting at Michigan Stadium, the 2002 opener, Michigan claimed victory as kicker Phil Brabbs converted a 44-yard field goal as time expired.

The Wolverines have compiled a 50-26-1 record against teams that currently compete in the Pacific-12 Conference. This will be the first time that Michigan will face a Pac-12 team since playing Colorado in 2016 at Michigan Stadium.
