The Wolverines announced Thursday their Oct. 13 homecoming game against Illinois will begin at 3:30 p.m. and air on ABC.

Two weeks later, it travels to Nebraska for an 8 p.m. game. That's the Wolverines' first game in Lincoln in program history.
Additionally, the Wolverines' season opener in Dallas against Alabama is expected to be a night game. That gives them at least five late games for next season, with their first four away games among them.
