Michigan, Notre Dame To Take Break From Rivalry In 2018, 2019

Michigan announced several future football matchups on Wednesday, and it also discreetly announced that its annual series with Notre Dame will be taking a break in 2018 and 2019. Included in the release about Michigan's future non-conference schedules is this blurb about the Notre Dame series:

In addition, Michigan and Notre Dame will take a two-year hiatus in their long-standing rivalry during the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Both schools intend to resume the rivalry in the years following.

There has been talk of Michigan and Notre Dame taking a break from their rivalry for quite some time now. It just was never clear when the two teams would take a couple years off, but we now know that the hiatus will happen in 2018 and 2019. After that, as the quote above states, the rivalry is expected to resume.

By taking a break from playing Notre Dame, Michigan will have the flexibility to schedule a home-and-home series with another big-time college football program. By the time this happens, the scheduling pact between the Big Ten and Pac-12 will have begun, and dropping Notre Dame for a couple years will allow Michigan to schedule a series outside of its annual Pac-12 game.

In 2014 and 2015, as well as 2020 and 2021, Michigan State and Notre Dame are scheduled to take a similar break from their rivalry. In 2014 and 2015, Michigan State will play a home-and-home series against Oregon, and the Spartans will take on Miami (Florida) in a home-and-home series in 2020 and 2021.

Michigan Football To Play Oregon State, UNLV, Colorado In Future Seasons

It turns out that Utah isn't the only Pac-12 team Michigan is scheduled to play in future seasons. Prior to the Big Ten's scheduling pact with the Pac-12 beginning in 2017, the Wolverines are also going to take on Oregon State and Colorado.

Specifically, Michigan will take on Oregon State in 2015 and Colorado in 2016. The game against Oregon State will be played at home on Sept. 19 and will be Michigan's second matchup with a Pac-12 team in 2015. (The Wolverines open the season at Utah.) Michigan's matchup with Colorado will take place on Sept. 17, 2016.

Michigan also announced on Wednesday that it will host Miami (Ohio) in 2014 and UNLV in 2015. This means the Wolverines' non-conference schedules for 2014 and 2015 are complete. The 2016 non-conference schedule still needs two more games to be filled. Here's a full look at each non-conference schedule for the 2014-16 seasons:
