Fans can watch the Notre Dame vs. Michigan game live online and see as the two storied franchises meet in what could be the tail end of one of college football’s historic rivalries.
The teams meet Saturday at 7:30 pm in South Bend, Indiana. This is the 42nd time the teams have met, a rivalry that dates all the way back to 1887.
But the future for the Notre Dame-Michigan rivalry is unclear. Though the teams originally announced a deal to play each year through 2031, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick informed Michigan in 2012 that Notre Dame was ending the series.
Michigan defensive end Frank Clark said he doesn’t like the abrupt end to the series.
“That’s one of the big rivals. You got Notre Dame-Michigan. You got (Michigan) State-Michigan. You got Ohio (State) vs. Michigan. For a team to opt out of that contract, and to opt out of playing another team that is a great rival and is one of those great games, it’s almost like a slap in the face,” he said. “We’re going to do what we’ve got to do to get the job done.”
But Notre Dame, who come into the contest ranked No. 16, are just focusing on the game.
“I don’t think I get into all the hype of it around here,” quarterback Everett Golson said. “But at the same time, you have to take care of business and prepare. Michigan is a great football team, so it’s going to be a tough one. But we’ll be ready for it.”
Fans who watch the Notre Dame vs. Michigan football game live online will be saving themselves quite a bit of money. As Forbes points out, tickets to the contest are quite the hot item and come with a huge price tag.
“According to TiqIQ, the average price for Notre Dame football tickets vs Michigan this weekend is currently $419.13, marking over a 12% increase from last year’s average secondary price of $373.35. The game has continually been one of the top-priced matchups each season and this year will be no different when both teams take the field on Saturday. The game currently trails just the Alabama-LSU matchup as the most expensive game of the season on the secondary market.”
