The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Michigan Wolverines aren’t playing this season, but they did play the previous three years. Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly was recently asked about the possibility of the series between the two teams being renewed and he made it very clear that he felt that the chances were increasing very quickly.
ND coach Brian Kelly on the @RichEisenShow says the prospect of ND-Michigan series renewal is "trending up."

Kelly is one of the best coaches in all of college football and having him go up against Jim Harbaugh would make for a very intriguing game.
Michigan football hasn’t been anything close to what it once was over the past few years, but they have the right guy in control of the program to turn it back around. Notre Dame is currently the No. 9 ranked team in the country and have been one of the nation’s best over the past couple of seasons.
They aren’t going anywhere anytime soon as long as Kelly’s recruiting is with the program.
It will be interesting to see what ends up happening with this series. Renewing it would be the right decision and would make for some fun and entertaining football in future.
