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

“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.”
