Michigan adds Group of 5 foe to future schedule
Michigan has added a future home game to its 2023 schedule to round out the nonconference slate for the season.
Friday afternoon, Stadium’s Brett McMurphy reported via Twitter that Michigan has added UNLV to the 2023 home schedule. It’s the final of three nonconference contests the Wolverines have available for the year.
The game is scheduled to be played on Sept. 9 and will take place in Ann Arbor. This will be the second-ever meeting between the two programs, with Michigan winning the 2015 bout 28-7.
Michigan adds 2023 home game with UNLV. Rebels will receive $1.5 million for the game. Also, UNLV adds home/home series w/North Texas; 2022 at UNLV, 2026 at UNT

As the tweet also says, UNLV will be getting paid $1.5 million to play the game against the Wolverines. They’ll also be playing North Texas at home in 2022 and then traveling to play the Mean Green in 2026.
UNLV will be the third non-conference opponent on the Wolverines schedule in 2023. They currently have East Carolina and Bowling Green as their other two non-conference opponents for that season. The other nine games that are currently on their schedule are all against Big Ten foes.
All three of Michigan’s non-conference games that year will be at Ann Arbor.
