Report: Texas vs Michigan schedule changes part of Big 12 exit deal

In 2014, Michigan and Texas announced a home and home series for games to be played in 2024 and 2027 with the Longhorns traveling to Ann Arbor in 2024. At some point in 2019 things were turned around and the Wolverines would due to travel to Austin next year .

Now Pete Thamel reports that the schedule is changing again.

The recent television deals for the SEC and Big Ten conferences have essentially created a rivalry between ESPN and Fox, with each having the primary broadcast rights for their respective conferences.

Fox will lose the Texas-Oklahoma game a season early to ESPN. In return they will now have the broadcast rights for Texas to Michigan in 2024 and Oklahoma to Michigan in 2025, while ESPN will get the rights when Michigan travels to Norman in 2026 and Austin in 2027.

Texas at Michigan is currently scheduled for September 7, 2004. With each conference working on new program formats for 2024 and beyond, that date may change.
