Michigan State and Toledo were unable to play during the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the two teams have agreed on a new date.

On Tuesday, Toledo announced that the two teams will now meet on September 5, 2026. The game will be played at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing. It will only be the second meeting between the two programs, the first in 1925.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the B1G has removed all non-conference games from the 2020 schedule. The league played a regular season of nine games, although only two teams (Penn State and Rutgers) played each game.

With Toledo back on track, Michigan State has now hired two non-conference opponents for the 2026 season. The Spartans will also play Notre Dame, although a date has not yet been announced. That means the MSU would have to fill another non-conference game to finalize their plan for the season.

With the exception of the 2024 campaign, all Michigan state opponents will be deployed in the 2026 season. The Spartans are looking for a third opponent this year.
