In a recent press release, Michigan has officially announced its 2015-16 non-conference schedule. The Wolverines faced some major non-conference opponents last season including Arizona, SMU, and Villanova and are set to add some other top matchups for next season.
Though Michigan does not have the elite teams on it schedule it had last year, there are still some really interesting matchups. Not only will the team face a good Xavier team at home, but they will also be challenged on the road by teams like North Carolina State and SMU.
