According to a tweet by John Rothstein of CBS Sports, UCLA and Michigan will play a home-and-home series starting with the 2016-2017 season. Rothstein says that the teams will start the series with UCLA hosting Michigan followed by a game in Ann Arbor in 2017-2018.

Neither school has confirmed the report.

This may end up being UCLA's marquee non-conference game for the season. Last season, the team hosted Kentucky in the first half of a home-and-home series with the Wildcats.

The teams have played 16 times since 1959 with UCLA holding an 11-5 lead in the series. Michigan won the last meeting in the 2011 Maui Invitational's third-place game.

Of course, the Bruins will travel to Lexington, KY on December 3rd to play the Kentucky as the teams complete their home-and-home series which began last season.

The remainder of the Bruins' 2016-2017 non-conference schedule has not yet been announced.

UPDATED 5/13/2016: This morning, UCLA officially announced what Jon Rothstein had reported earlier in the week. UCLA will host Michigan this season and travel to Ann Arbor next season.

The release also mentions that the Bruins will play in the Wooden Legacy Thanksgiving week this season where the teams participating will be: CSUN, Dayton, Nebraska, New Mexico, Portland, Texas A&M, UCLA and Virginia Tech.

The Bruins will also face Ohio State this season in the CBS Sports Classic on December 17th in Las Vegas.

Go Bruins!
