The rivalry between the two winningest programs in college football history is currently at a fever pitch. However, the rivalry once had a 35-year break as the two teams did not play each other between 1944-1977. In 1978, the Wolverines traveled to South Bend to play the Fightin' Irish. The game featured the two top quarterbacks in the nation as Rick Leach led Michigan while Joe Montana led Notre Dame. The Wolverines won 28-14 and the rivalry was renewed. All -time the Wolverines lead the series 20-14-1. Go Blue!
