This is likely to lead to a low season overreaction.
Michigan announced Thursday that it is canceling its game against Virginia Tech 2020 and replacing it on the board with a game against Arkansas State.
Michigan must find an opponent to replace Virginia Tech 2021. The Arkansas state game will be the first time Michigan has played the Red Wolves.
While it's easy to say, Michigan mixes by planning a Sun Belt team instead of one of the better teams in the ACC, the Wolverines still have a tough schedule in 2020 and 2021 thanks to the presence of Washington. Michigan and Washington play a home-and-home series these two seasons and the Wolverines also play Wisconsin alongside division opponents Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State.
Yes, the landscape of college football could be a little different in two years, but it is a safe assumption that Michigan will still have one of the hardest schedules in the country. And hopefully, the Arkansas State Matchup ends up less contentious than the planned Red Wolves game with Miami in 2017.
