Michigan State, Toledo announce make-up date for 2020 game scratched because of pandemic
Michigan State and Toledo didn’t get to play during the 2020 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the two teams have come to an agreement on a rescheduled date.
On Tuesday, Toledo announced that the two teams will now meet on Sept. 5, 2026. The game will be played at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing. It will be just the second meeting between the two programs, with the first coming in 1925.
The B1G eliminated all nonconference games from the 2020 schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The league played a nine-game regular season, though only two teams (Penn State and Rutgers) played every game.
With Toledo back on the schedule, Michigan State now has two nonconference opponents set for the 2026 season. The Spartans are also scheduled to play Notre Dame, though a date has not been announced. That means MSU would need to fill one more nonconference game to complete its slate for the season.
All of Michigan State’s opponents are set through the 2026 season, with the exception of the 2024 campaign. The Spartans are still looking for a third opponent that year.
