Saturday night, Notre Dame visited Michigan in a big early-season matchup.

Michigan earned the victory, then had some fun with the “chicken dance” at Notre Dame’s expense.

Last year, Notre Dame informed Michigan they were cancelling future football games between the two schools. Mgoblue.com reported:

The University of Michigan Athletic Department announced today (Tuesday, Sept. 25) that the football series with Notre Dame has been cancelled for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons. The Irish informed Michigan director of athletics Dave Brandon prior to kickoff of the match-up Saturday (Sept. 22) in South Bend, Ind.

“The decision to cancel games in 2015-17 was Notre Dame’s and not ours,” said Brandon, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. “We value our annual rivalry with Notre Dame but will have to see what the future holds for any continuation of the series.”

The teams will play at Notre Dame next year, then have no other games scheduled at this time.

Notre Dame’s cancellation of the series caused Michigan coach Brady Hoke to (accurately) suggest Notre Dame was “chickening out” of the series:

After next year’s game how long will it be until we see Michigan and Notre Dame meet on the field again?  Who knows?  Until then, check out the post-game chicken dance below.
