Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh really wants to play Notre Dame — and he’s put quite a bit of thought into it.
Per ESPN’s Dan Murphy, Harbaugh has been working for “7, 8, 9 months” on scheduling a non-conference game against the Irish team.

The two teams last played one another roughly two years ago in 2014. The game ended in a 31-0 shutout with Notre Dame coming out on top.
The Wolverines and the Fighting Irish have not faced each other since. The two teams came to a mutual agreement to cancel the contests planned for 2018-19, and Notre Dame decided against the games scheduled for 2015-2017 for their own reasons.
Both teams’ schedules are very much filled for the upcoming seasons, but this non-conference match-up is one that needs to be played in the near future.
