Michigan and Notre Dame to renew rivalry in 2018

Great news for fans of the Michigan Wolverines and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish this morning. It appears that the popular rivalry between two of the oldest football programs in the nation is set to renew in 2018.

This news has been forecast for quite some time with officials from both schools expressing their interest in making it happen. It also comes nearly two months after it was announced that the rivalry between Notre Dame and the Michigan State Spartans, which is returning this season, will be played under the lights in South Bend. Here at DSN we’ve covered how both Brian Kelly and Jim Harbaugh have intimated that they would like to see the two schools face off again.

Even though Michigan leads the series all time with a record of 24-17-1 the last time these teams played in 2014, Notre Dame came out on top by a score of 31-0.

Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel was very forthcoming last month telling the Detroit News about his feelings on the rivalry:

“I’ve stated the Notre Dame rivalry is important to us and important to me and to Michigan and to Notre Dame and to our fan base and, I think, to college football.”

One thing is for sure, in 2018 we can finally get back to pointing out all our favorite things about the school in South Bend. Most notably, their spelling prowess.
