Michigan and Notre Dame will meet under the lights on the gridiron in a nationally televised game at Michigan Stadium next September.
U of M officials made the announcement yesterday and also confirmed 1940 Heisman Trophy winner Tom Harmon will be honored as a Michigan Football Legend in a ceremony before the game.
The contest will be only the second night game at the Big House, with the Wolverines topping the Irish 35-31 in 2011.
This will be the final game between the two schools for at least several years as Notre Dame has decided to opt out of the rivalry series beginning in 2014.
Seven non-Football Bowl Subdivision schools could be leaving the Big East.
Reports say the presidents of DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Villanova are leaning toward breaking away.
Those schools are scheduled to have a teleconference with Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco today and make a decision on their future within 48 hours.
