One of college football’s most storied rivalries is headed for a hiatus, and it doesn't appear a resolution is on the horizon.

Saturday’s game between Michigan and Notre Dame will be the second-to-last game in the series. The two programs will halt their head-to-head matchups following 2014's game at Notre Dame.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon told the Detroit News he has not spoken with Notre Dame about picking up the series after next season.

"Our schedule is booked going out into the early '20s and my understanding is theirs is, as well," Brandon said. "So my view is the only way we're going to play Notre Dame after next year would be if we run into them in a bowl game or if our schedules allowed us to have some kind of a neutral site one-off game somewhere along the way."

Notre Dame takes on Michigan for the 41st time Saturday night at 7 p.m. Michigan leads the all-time series 23–16–1.
