Michigan adds Arkansas, BYU, Hawaii to future sked

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan added Arkansas, Brigham Young and Hawaii to its future football schedules on Tuesday.

Notre Dame opted out of scheduled 2015-17 games last month against Michigan ahead of a previously scheduled break in the rivalry during the 2018-19 seasons. The Wolverines essentially replaced two matchups with the Fighting Irish with a game against BYU in 2015 and against Hawaii the next season, leaving a spot to fill in 2017.

Michigan will play the Razorbacks at home in 2018 and on the road the next year. The two teams have met only once, in the 1998 Citrus Bowl.

The Wolverines finished their 2015 schedule by adding BYU and the 2016 slate with games against Hawaii, Miami (Ohio) and Ball State, where Brady Hoke played football and was a first-time head coach.
