The final pieces of Michigan’s schedule have finally come together as the program announced the game times and TV designations for the 2019-20 season on Thursday.
All 32 of Michigan’s contests — 31 regular-season games and one exhibition — will have national coverage. The Wolverines will have 11 games televised on BTN’s networks, eight on ESPN’s networks, seven on FS1, four on CBS and two on Fox.
Unlike last season, Michigan won’t have to deal with many late weeknight tip-offs. The Wolverines will only have three games that will start at 9 p.m. and all three will be on the road during Big Ten play: at Illinois (Dec. 11), at Iowa (Jan. 17) and at Northwestern (Feb. 12).
Those are Michigan’s only games that have a start time after 7 p.m. Last year, Michigan had seven games that tipped off at 8 p.m. or later.
That late-night number could possibly increase by one as the tip time for Michigan’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge matchup against Louisville will be released at a later date.
Michigan will begin the Juwan Howard era with an exhibition against Saginaw Valley State on Nov. 1 before hosting Appalachian State in the regular-season opener on Nov. 5. Both games will tip at 7 p.m.
In total, the Wolverines will have 17 home games, 11 road games and four neutral site games: three in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas in late November and one at Madison Square Garden in New York against Rutgers on Feb. 1.
