Michigan and defending national champion LSU reportedly have had discussions about meeting on the football field.

LSU athletic director Scott Woodward had a live “town hall” interview with The Advocate of Baton Rouge, La., on Thursday and said he hopes to add Michigan to a Tigers schedule in the future.

Michigan plays nine Big Ten games and three non-conference games each season. The Wolverines’ non-conference schedule is full through 2022. There is an opening in 2023 – only East Carolina and Bowling Green are scheduled that year – but LSU does not have an opening in 2023.

That makes 2024 the earliest the teams could meet, unless a UM or LSU opponent is bought out of its contract.

Michigan and LSU have never met in football.

The Wolverines’ non-conference opponents this season are Washington, Ball State and Arkansas State.
