The University of Notre Dame and University of Michigan athletic departments announced jointly on Thursday a two-year, home-and-home football series beginning in 2018.
Notre Dame and Michigan will play September 1, 2018, at Notre Dame Stadium, and October 26, 2019, at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.
“Today is a great day for Notre Dame, Michigan and college football fans across the country,” says Notre Dame vice president and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. “Shortly after Warde Manuel was hired as Michigan’s athletic director, he and I began working to make this renewal of the series possible. That we could get games on the schedule as soon as ’18 and ’19 required a lot of work by our staffs and some great cooperation by the Big Ten, ACC and other schools that were on our future schedules.
