In what will be their fourth straight meeting in prime time and the last scheduled game of a lengthy series, the Michigan Wolverines and Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play at night in South Bend, Indiana on Saturday, Sept. 6. NBC will televise the clash between the college football rivals at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The announcement came via NBC Sports and Notre Dame, a development that U-M's official athletic website,, reported today.

In September 2012, the Fighting Irish opted out of their longstanding nonconference agreement with the Wolverines, which leads the head-to-head series 24-16-1. Notre Dame officials cited their decision to play five games per season against teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) as the main reason for severing gridiron ties with Michigan. The Fighting Irish begin their ACC slate this fall.

Meanwhile, the Wolverines kick off their 2014 schedule with an August 30 matchup versus Appalachian State, followed by the road meeting with Notre Dame. This season marks the debut of Rutgers and Maryland in the Big Ten, whose membership is now 14 teams.
