ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Notre Dame is opting out of its series with Michigan, meaning the last scheduled game between college football’s winningest programs will take place in 2014.

The Fighting Irish recently decided to move to the Atlantic Coast Conference in every sport except football and hockey, though the football team will play five games a year against league opponents, starting no later than 2015.

Brandon said he hopes to work with Swarbrick on another contract to extend the series.
