Michigan Athletics announced on Thursday that the Wolverines have canceled their upcoming football series with Virginia Tech, agreeing to pay Tech a cancellation fee of $375,000.
The series, which was slated for the 2020 and 2021 seasons, could be revived at a later date but is dead for now. Michigan’s press release says on the matter, “potential future dates to be discussed at a later date.”
Virginia Tech now has two openings in their 2020 and 2021 schedules. Looking at the TechSideline.com future football schedules page, the Hokies’ non-conference slate in 2021 should be a little easier now, with Tech avoiding having to play Michigan, West Virginia and Notre Dame all in the same season. Tech’s non-conference opponents for 2020 are now Liberty, Penn State and East Carolina.
