For the first time in the history of Michigan Stadium, the Wolverines will host a designated night game and Notre Dame will be the guest. The announcement came today from new Michigan Athletic Director, David Brandon.
The game will take place on September 10, 2011 and will air on either ESPN or ESPN2.
"This will be an unprecedented game day atmosphere that our fans have
not experienced at Michigan Stadium," Brandon said.
"It's a great opportunity to showcase our program, university and Ann
Arbor to a primetime viewing audience. This also adds a new chapter to
the storied rivalry between our two great programs."
Notre Dame and Michigan have met 37 times throughout history with the Wolverines holding a 21-15-1 edge over the Fighting Irish, however the Irish lead the series 11-9 since 1987.
The teams are scheduled to play annually from now until 2031 with the exception of 2018 and 2019.
