Michigan vs. Texas is coming to the 2024 college football schedule, and it is bound to be one of the elite early-season matchups across the country!

This season, the Longhorns and Wolverines will begin a home-and-home series with a Week 2 matchup in Ann Arbor. That game inside the Big House is set for Saturday, Sept. 7 and the details for that matchup were announced on Saturday.

While airing Michigan’s annual spring game, FOX confirmed “Big Noon Kickoff” will be live from the showdown and the game is set for a 12 pm ET kickoff. All eyes will be on this showdown as one of the first looks at the new SEC vs. Big Ten ahead of the inaugural 12-team Playoff.

What’s on the line?

Traditionally 2 of the strongest programs in college football, Texas and Michigan have just 1 previous head-to-head matchup. That game came in the 2005 Rose Bowl, a 38-37 victory for Mack brown’s Longhorns over Lloyd Carr’s Wolverines.

This time around, the matchup is likely going to be a top-10 battle coming off of both teams reaching the College Football Playoff last season, including Michigan’s 15-0 season and national championship.

The showdown is one of the early game lines already released at ESPN Bet with Texas opening as a surprising 3.5-point road favorite. The Longhorns do return the bulk of their production from last season while Michigan is replacing key pieces across the board, but the Wolverines will still be playing at home with another strong defense.

We’ll see how that line shifts as we get closer to the regular season down the road.
