It looks like Michigan and Texas will hook up in a basketball home-and-home series.

According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, Michigan will face Texas in Ann Arbor next season.

The return game would be in Austin in the 2017-18 season.

Michigan holds a 3-2 series lead over Texas. All five games have been played since 1990.

The most recent meeting was Nov. 27 of last season in the Battle for Atlantis tournament, Michigan winning 78-72 in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
