Saturday night’s game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Michigan Wolverines won’t be last of this series. The schools announced a new agreement to play in 2033 and 2034 (that’s in 14 years if you need help counting).

Jack Swarbrick on the future of the Michigan series
“I want to thank Warde (Manuel and Coach Harbaugh for helping us to secure the future of the series and for continuing to work with us as we look for additional dates when Notre Dame and Michigan might play. College football is at its best when its top programs square off. This is an example of that as are Notre Dame’s recently completed series with Georgia, future series against Alabama, Arkansas, Michigan State, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and Wisconsin, and our annual rivalry games with USC and Stanford. Having played in 13 of America’s 20 largest markets during Coach Kelly’s tenure, Notre Dame remains committed to the uniquely national schedule that has long defined us.”
It’s still a long time away, but for those fans that hold this series in high regard and want to see it again — you only have a decade and a half to wait for it to restart.
