ROSEMONT, Ill. – The Big Ten Conference and its television partners announced Thursday, May 26, the kickoff times for six University of Michigan football games during the 2022 season. Additional games may be selected prior to the season or will be chosen during the six- and 12-day selection process with the networks.
Michigan will open the season Sept. 3 with a noon kickoff against Colorado State on ABC. The Wolverines won the only previous game with the Rams, a 24-14 win at the 1994 Holiday Bowl in San Diego, California.
A week later, on September 10, Michigan will host Hawaii in a primetime game at 8 p.m. on Big Ten Network. UM holds a 3-0 advantage in the all-time series, winning the first two games at Maui in the 1986 and 1998 seasons and winning a 63-3 affair at the Big House in the 2016 season.
Michigan will face Connecticut in the team’s final non-conference game on Sept. 17, with a scheduled kickoff at noon on ABC. This will be the third meeting between the Wolverines and the Huskies, with Michigan earning a 30-10 victory at the re-consecration of Michigan Stadium in the 2010 season and a 24-21 victory at UConn in the 2013 season.
The Wolverines will start the Big Ten season against Maryland at noon from the Big House on September 24. The match will be televised by FOX or FS1. UM has won nine of 10 meetings with Terrapins, including the last six meetings between the two programs.

Michigan will be Indiana’s return opponent on October 8 at Memorial Stadium. The game between the Wolverines and the Hoosiers will begin at noon on a television network to be determined. UM compiled an all-time 60-10 record against the Hoosiers and is 20-3 all-time on the road against IU.
