Michigan and UCLA had a home-and-home series scheduled for 2022 and 2023. But according to a report, that series will now not be taking place.

The Wolverines will forego the games vs. UCLA to allow for an additional home game in each year. It allows Michigan to have seven homes games in both 2022 and 2023.

With a void in both season's schedule, Michigan has scheduled Hawaii in 2022 and East Carolina in 2023.

Here's an excerpt from the University of Michigan's official statement:

"The University of Michigan Athletic Department announced the addition of two non-conference home games during the 2022 and 2023 seasons as well as the cancellation of the UCLA series. The scheduling decisions were made in an effort to provide Wolverine fans with a seven-game home schedule every season."

Some Michigan fans are excited considering the additional home game. But college football fans are generally disappointed in the series cancellation.

It's not too often teams will travel that far to play each other — especially in a home-and-home series. Generally, games between schools so far away are played at a 'neutral site' somewhere in between the two universities.

But the cancellation of home-and-home series has become an unfortunate trend in college football.

Fortunately for Wolverines fans, it means seven total home games in both 2022 and 2023.
