Minnesota completed its nonconference football schedules for the next six seasons Friday, securing home games against Rhode Island and Nevada in 2024 and with Buffalo in 2025.

The Gophers host Florida Atlantic, Tennessee Tech and BYU in 2020. They play Miami of Ohio and Bowling Green at home and at Colorado in 2021. Colorado comes to TCF Bank Stadium in 2022, along with New Mexico State and Western Illinois.

The Gophers also previously announced a game against Mississippi State for 2026, with a rematch on the road in 2027.
