Michigan hasn't shied away from heavyweight opponents under Jim Harbaugh, and the national champs could be next on the list. 

LSU athletic director Scott Woodward said Thursday the school has talked with Michigan about a future matchup -- and the Tigers want to make it happen. 

It would be the first game ever between two of the more storied programs in college football history. 

It's safe to assume Michigan wants it, too. 

The Wolverines have had season-openers against Utah, Florida and Notre Dame during Harbaugh's tenure, and they're set to kick things off this year against Washington. They have future games scheduled with Texas (2024 & 2027) and Oklahoma (2025 & 2026). 

Michigan's non-conference dates are spoken for through 2022, but it has openings beginning in 2023. The Tigers don't have openings until 2024. 

So there's a good chance, if the matchup comes to fruition, that Michigan could play LSU in the same year as Texas or Oklahoma. 

Sound fun?
