The last time GameDay was in Ann Arbor was 2011 when Michigan scored 28 4th quarter points, including a Denard Robinson touchdown pass with :02 remaining, to beat Notre Dame.
So you think that this is a rivalry that has been played since football was invented? False.
Since 1980, the teams didn’t play in 2000-2001, 1995-1996 and 1983-1984. The teams only played twice in the 1970s, didn’t play in the 1950s or 1960s and played twice in the 1940s.
The sport will go on without Michigan-Notre Dame.
