NOTRE DAME, Ind. – This time has come for the Battle Under the Lights between Notre Dame and Michigan.
This will be the 39th meeting all-time between the rivals. It is Notre Dame’s sixth-most played series and the third-most frequent with any school in the Big Ten. Michigan holds a 22-15-1 lead in the series and took last year’s meeting, 28-24, in South Bend. The Wolverines have captured each of the last two meetings in Ann Arbor – 38-0 in 2007 and 38-34 in 2009.
This marks the first night game in the 84-year history of Michigan Stadium. It also represents the first of a Notre Dame record five night games in 2011. Notre Dame owns an all-time mark of 58-33-2 in night games, including a 3-0 record against Michigan.
