ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan and Washington have decided to renew their rivalry.

The Wolverines will play the Huskies in Seattle in 2020 and will host them at the Big House in Ann Arbor the following year.

The agreement announced Wednesday by both schools marks their fifth home-and-home series. They have also played each other in the Rose Bowl four times.

Michigan leads the all-time series 7-5 and won the last matchup in 2002 on Philip Brabbs’ 44-yard field goal as time expired.

Minnesota Governor: Vikings’ Peterson should be suspended

FILE - In this Sept. 7, 2014, file photo, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson warms up for an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis. The Vikings benched Peterson for Sunday's game after his attorney said he had been indicted by a Texas grand jury on a charge of child abuse. Attorney Rusty Hardin says the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank his son. He says Peterson has cooperated with authorities and "used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son." Hardin says Peterson regrets the incident but never intended to harm the boy.

Gov. Mark Dayton called Peterson's actions "a public embarrassment" to the Vikings and the state of Minnesota. Vikings Sponsorship suspended & Petersen's court date moved.
