College Football Odds 7/11/16 – Michigan, Notre Dame to renew rivalry

After a short time apart, Michigan and Notre Dame have agreed to renew their rivalry, starting in the 2018 season.

The two schools announced late last week that they would meet in the 2018 season opener on Sept. 1 in South Bend and then follow it up with a 2019 meeting in Ann Arbor on Oct. 26.

“This is a game that holds great significance for the student-athletes and coaches who compete on the field,” Michigan AD Warde Manuel said in a statement. “A great deal of credit goes to Coach Harbaugh and Coach Kelly for initiating the discussion of scheduling this series. This rivalry is also important for the fans of both programs, and we look forward to renewing one of college football's great rivalries.”
