Key Games

2/29 vs St. John’s 

In their first-ever meeting last season, Michigan pulled out a 16-11 win over St. John’s. Michigan was able to go on a few multi-goal runs in the fourth to secure the win, but St. John’s almost creeped back late. The Wolverines will be looking for their second win all-time against the Red Storm this season. 

3/7 vs Yale (Costa Mesa, CA)

Michigan will head west to take on Yale in the Pacific Coast Shootout in Costa Mesa, CA this year. Last season, these two squads took the field against each other in Atlanta. Yale- the 2019 NCAA championship runner-up- defeated Michigan 17-11. 

3/14 vs Notre Dame (Chicago, IL)

Meeting at a neutral site in Chicago this year, Michigan will be looking to secure their second-ever win over the Irish and first since 2018. Last year’s meeting saw the Irish take the 12-9 win, avenging their upset loss to the Wolverines a season prior. 

4/25 @ Ohio State

Facing their archrival, the Wolverines will be looking to take down the Buckeyes for the season year in a row and second time ever. Michigan got their first win over Ohio State last season, 13-10, with a four-goal run in the second quarter helping them get ahead and stay ahead.
