The rivalry is coming to an end, at least for now

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- It has been an ongoing rivalry that has run hot and cold for more than a century now.

The Fighting Irish hosted the Wolverines Saturday evening for the 42nd and possibly final time.

The game took place under the lights at Notre Dame Stadium.

The rivalry dates all the way back to when these two teams faced off for the first time back in 1887.

We spoke with two fans who, despite their differences, said they were going to the game together and would also leave together, win or lose.

"We're really excited, it's sad to see the rivalry going away, although I guess it will never really go away, but we're really excited about it and we're grateful to get a chance to be here," said the couple.

Notre Dame and Michigan will not play against each other any time in the near future because of a scheduling deal that starts next year with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
