Other than the annual Army vs. Navy game which will take place on Dec. 14, the 2019 college football regular season and conference championship games are in the books.
For the University of Michigan, it was an up and down season. Jim Harbaugh‘s team picked up wins over rivals Notre Dame and Michigan State but they stumbled against Wisconsin, Penn State, and their biggest rival, the Ohio State Buckeyes.
That being said, the 2019-2020 bowl destinations have been revealed and Michigan will be playing in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1.
Their opponent? The Alabama Crimson Tide.
Alabama-Michigan will play in Citrus Bowl, sources told @Stadium. Hopefully bowl contract requires both head coaches to ride tea cups together at Disney World

Prior to the start of the season, Alabama was a heavy favorite to get back to the College Football Playoff, but losses to LSU and Auburn prevented that from happening.
Nation, are you excited to see Michigan vs. Alabama on New Year’s Day?
