Utah & Michigan officially schedule a home-and-home

NEW ORLEANS, LA - JANUARY 03: The Michigan Wolverines pile on kicker Brendan Gibbons #34 after Gibbons kicked a successful 37-yard game-winning field goal in overtime against the Virginia Tech Hokies during the Allstate Sugar Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 3, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Michigan will be coming to Salt Lake City for the 2015 season. This news isn't entirely unexpected, as rumors leaked a couple weeks ago that the Wolverines and Utes would be signing an upcoming series. However, now it's official - the two will meet for the first time since the 2008 season.

It will also be the biggest-named out of conference opponent to ever step into Rice-Eccles Stadium.

If there is only one benefit to joining the Pac-12 (and let's be honest, there's a great deal more), it's been this scheduling deal. There is absolutely no way Utah signs a similar deal with Michigan had they still been stuck in the Mountain West.

So, while we're a couple years away from the actual series starting, it's nice to know what we have down the pike. Now let's line up Urban Meyer and Ohio State before he again retires at the end of the 2016 season.
